Case Build & Finished Product

The front of the chassis, when built within in stock configuration, has no change in appearance. If you look closely, you can see some parts inside past the fans, but overall it seems the same, which is not a bad thing as the Battlecruiser is a nice-looking chassis.

Since the Battlecruiser has quad ARGB fans, I opted to install the 120mm AIO up top in the front. We could not fit our H110i Pro up top due to the conflict with the memory. The massive space allotted within this chamber means that everything went in without issue and installation, especially with the top offering free access, went rather smoothly.

The rear I/O area fills in as you would expect. Nothing was difficult to navigate or install; it simply worked as expected.

The cable management took a bit longer than usual as there were so many options for where to mount cables. Looking at the lower area, you can see the large bundle of RGB cabling, which I tied down there in hopes of keeping a tidier feel. Even though I don't like the mass of RGB cabling, I think it turned out rather well. Do note that the SSD mounting toward the front I used as cable tie-downs for the stock chassis harness to run; this would need to be adjusted if you install SSD's in this area.

Here we fixed the panel to show how easily you can see your cabling. This is why I mentioned that you have to spend some time on this unless you don't care how it looks.

Here we have the built system with all the glass panels attached. As you can see, the view is mostly unchanged as the glass is clear, and therefore you can see your rig even with the system powered off.

When powering the rig on, the fans can use 14 total color options. The first eight are static color options; then, there are four varying rainbow modes. The thirteenth option is the LEDs off, and a long press of the button enters "music mode." The default mode 1 is solid red, as you see here.
