Case Build & Finished Product

With all of the parts in and the chassis reassembled, from the front, the view does not change much. We cannot see the 240mm radiator we installed in the front, but we do see the gap to the right of the front panel is no blocked off more, due to having to run the cables there.

The left side view comes out much cleaner than we had expected with what we consider a complete lack of wire management. We do see some of the leads going to the motherboard, but overall the look is clean, where all of the major components are in view.

The PSU and the video card gave us no issues when it came to mounting them, but there is one thing lacking here we wish we had. We would have liked it if the GPU bracket included a rear I/O panel bracket so that the rear dust shield could be used, allowing its markings to help users down the road.

With the system we use, wires are limited, but even so, with no dedicated wire management, wires are left to hang behind the motherboard tray. Had we populated the HDD and SSD mount locations, things would look even worse than they do now, and the glass is not tinted enough to block this from view.

Now that we have the power applied, two lights come on with the Torque. The Antec logo has a red LED behind it which is on any time the system is running, as well as the tiny blue LED in the power button. As for noise and airflow, with the Torque, as shipped, there is none. It is up to you to configure fans and radiators to your liking.
