Inside the 680X
The front, for the most part, will not need to be removed, and you have to remove several screws internally to remove the left-hand side. The right-hand side of the front, as you see, can be pulled off, but there's not much most will use here. If you wanted to remove the plastic from the front entirely, it would require more work than would likely be beneficial as the removable trays allow you to install radiators or cooling as needed without ever removing any external panel.
The interior of the 680X is wide open and has tons of space to sort out your liquid cooling endeavors should you choose to install a massive cooling system. You can see two separate vertical rows of cable management pockets with grommets. On the front, we see the tray which can be removed with the removal of two thumbscrews. Here you can also see the three preinstalled 120mm LL fans.
Much like the front, there is no real reason to remove the glass panel, but I did so here to show that they can indeed be removed. In reality, if you want to install cooling here, you can do this by pulling the cooling bracket from inside with two thumbscrews. When you do this, you would also want to install the magnetic filter here, which will sandwich between the bracket and the chassis. Here we have mounting for dual 120mm or dual 140mm with slotted mounting.
Here is the bracket removed from the top form the interior as you can see the bracket mounts with two tabs on the motherboard tray side, while the two thumbscrews fasten the bracket securely at the top.
Here we installed the included magnetic filter, and you can see that the filter fits well and has foam pads to ensure the filter assembly seals against the top of the chassis.
At the bottom of the 680X, we see the interior of the bottom chassis mounting for cooling. The slotted mounting once again for dual 120mm or 140mm. Depending on expansion card installation, radiator mounting and thickness may be limited here to avoid motherboard interference.
