Inside the RL08

The front panel comes off easily as it is retained with plastic pegs, which are a friction fit. Once inside, we see the dual fan mounting, which is covered by a removable filter unit.

Here, we removed the front filter to show the slotted mounting for front cooling fans or radiators. Here we can now more clearly see the semi-opaque fans, which are RGB lit when plugged in. Up top we see the large opening for the 5.25" fitment, this is something I have not seen on a case for a while and am a bit surprised to see it here. However, I do know some users need optical media or even another device that fits into a 5.25" bay, but those days are quickly fading.

With the panel removed, you could almost mistake the RL08 for the LD01 as it is structurally the same chassis. The inverted aspect is kind of cool as it flips the entire system component 180 from where you would generally see it. The CPU cutout is massive.

Looking inside of the front area and we can see the two RGB 120mm preinstalled fans. Adjacent to this, we see near the top that the GPU support bracket is there as well, offering a surface for a GPU to sit ion preventing sag. Here we can also see the rather sizeable grommets for the cable passthrough, which are more than enough for what an mATX build would need.

The top with the filter removed gives us a full view of the slotted mounting for cooling up top. This is enough for top-mounted fans or even AIO/radiators, just measure carefully to ensure you have clearance with your GPU.

The PSU shroud is solid steel and well built. The shroud has a SilverStone logo embossed on the side visible outwardly. The top of the PSU shroud has one passthrough, which is not grommeted and a larger one further outboard with a large grommet.
