Well, there are just so many things to talk about in regards to the interior. The best thing is that this case literally pulls right apart. The side panels aren't screwed in, and yet they're extremely stable and secure, and the front panel is mounted on spring-loaded hinges which pop right off for ease of access to the front bays.
With the left hand side cover removed, the entire side panel is dominated by a swing door which features mounting brackets for up to four 12cm fans. This, combined with the default front fan mounted in the 4-in-3 module and the rear fan, plus an optional top mounted 12cm fan means that you can fit up to seven 12cm fans in a standard configuration. Use three 4-in-3 modules and you'll have a grand total of nine 12cm fans. That's some serious wind power. Even if you don't mount extra fans, the individual housings are made of the same black mesh which protects all the air ducts, so it acts as an extra layer of dust protection.
The 4-in-3 module is a self-contained housing which fits 4 3.5" devices (hard drives, really) into 3 5.25" bays and has a 12cm fan with blue LED mounted on the front for in-house cooling. Funky. As with all 5.25" devices, it mounts via the front but the mesh covers fit back over the top for dust protection.
The rear cover over the PSU is removable, and is then fitted direct onto the PSU so that the whole unit can be fitted. It slides in from the rear and can actually be mounted upside down or as normal, depending on your particular PSU and how it best fits your personal preferences for cable management and airflow. As there's an air outlet at the top of the case (and optional fan mounting), pointing the PSU fan straight up rather than back into the case interior is perfectly feasible, and would actually promote some pretty good airflow.
One of my favourite features - the motherboard tray is completely removable - slides straight out with a convenient handle (they thought of everything!). And as the full PCI mounting brackets are attached, you can install the motherboard, heat sink and fan along with ALL the expansion cards safely without skinning your knuckles before sliding the whole thing back in. I'm in love!
So, apart from cabling everything together, you really don't need to have hand battles with yourself in the dark interior. Everything is put together outside the case and then just slots back in neatly.
