Inside the LD01

The front panel comes off with a firm pull, as it is retained with plastic peg clips. After removing the temped glass-covered front panel, we see the filter which covers the slotted front cooling mounting. The filter is not magnetic but relies on slipping into the front steel.

Now we take a look inside the main chamber. The CPU cutout in the motherboard tray is enormous and should service any CPU cooler backplate you may need. Two large cable pockets are running along the far edge of the motherboard tray along with a large one in the PSU shroud. The GPU support can also be seen here, and as long as your GPU exceeds the edge of the motherboard, it should do an excellent job of preventing sag.

Here we see the front fan/radiator mounting. The mounting can easily fit fans up here, or if adding a radiator and fans, you need to ensure the HDD cages are pushed back to its closest mounting to the PSU.

We removed the magnetic top filter, and this exposes the slotted 120 and 140mm mounting. This area is claimed to support 120 and 140mm radiators, but I will say that this will depend heavily on your expansion card size and amount installed, since the LD01's expansion slots run right up to the top.

The PSU shroud down below is where we peek next. The shroud, as previously mentioned, has a passthrough with grommet. The shroud runs almost the entire length from front to the rear. The area up front is omitted to ensure a radiator can fit mounted at the front edge. The side of the PSU shroud has the SilverStone logo stamped into it, but I don't know if anyone will see that unless you light it up being how dark the panels are.
