Micronics Master M400 Mid-Tower Chassis Review (Page 5)

Inside the Master M400 Continued


The back of the chassis is where the third fan is located, and it is ringed with LEDs just like the two in the front. Below the fan, we find the seven expansion slots with two removable covers, and the rest are knock-out style. The two vertical slots are accessed from the outside but do allow for vertical GPU mounting, if you buy the riser card.


The PSU cover sections off the motherboard from the hard drives, which are accessed from this side. At the back, there is a cut-out to view the PSU sticker, and just above it is the vertical GPU mounting bracket. We also found another pair of holes for the wires, which also have grommets in them.


Behind the motherboard tray, we located the manual and hardware tied into the HDD cage. On the left is a pair of locations for 2.5" drives to be mounted on the front of the motherboard tray, and under the CPU access hole is room for another couple of them.


The HDD cage is set back enough to allow a radiator to sit in front of it, and has a pair of plastic trays in it. These bays will house 3.5" drives with screws through the sides of the trays and can be used for more 2.5" drive bays, as the trays are drilled to accommodate that.


The PSU has ventilation under it, and a set of three foam pads for the PSU to rest on. When using a modular power supply, we suggest connecting the wires to the unit before putting it in the chassis, as there is not much room to do it after, and the HDD cage is not removable.


Not in the image are a pair of 4-pin Molex connectors for the power to the fans, and the other is used for an RGB fan hub, which has nothing connected to it for this chassis. We can see the mess of 3-pin fan connections on the left, the front panel wires for LEDs and buttons, the HD Audio cable, the USB 2.0 cable, and even the native USB 3.0 cable. All of which are black, and will blend in when the build is finished.
