FSP CMT520 RGB Mid-Tower Chassis

The front of the CMT520 is sleek with the use of dark tinted tempered glass. We also like that it is installed on a bezel, which allows FSP to add style with the angles and use of color-matched plastic.

Just above the tempered glass, as part of the front bezel. We find the front I/O panel. On the left are a pair of USB 2.0 ports, HD audio jacks, and the power button in the middle. To the right is an HDD activity LED, and LED selector button, followed by a pair of USB 3.00 ports.

The top of the chassis is the same as the CMT330 in every way. Steel is used for the panel, but the bulk of it has been opened up for optional cooling support. Currently, this area is covered with a plastic dust filter with tiny holes, and it kept in place with magnetic strips.

Like the CMT510, the left side of the chassis gets a tempered glass panel to look through. However, the interior is different, and for some reason, they did not paint the edges of the glass to block the view of the frame.

At the back, the top of the chassis is forced inward, from shipping we assume, above where the fan and rear I/O are. The cover plate for the eight expansion slots is askew, and at the bottom, we find a mounting plate to allow the PSU to slide in from the back.

Unlike the CMT510, the CMT520 does not come with tempered glass on the right side of the chassis. Just as well though, as glass allows a view of what most try to hide anyways.

The view of the underside of the CMT520 is identical to what we saw in the CMT330. An easier to remove dust filer at the back, an HDD cage that is riveted to the chassis, and large feat utilizing soft foam for solid footing.
