To get the side panels off, the top cover must first be removed.
The panels are held on by two thumbscrews at the top, but the grip at the bottom
is subpar and may cause resonance problems if high vibration hard drives are
installed. A more elegant solution is that used in the Antec NSK-3480, where
both top and bottom portions of the side panels have a gripping hook which ensure
tight fit using just gravity, with no need for screws; the top cover panel locks
the side panels in place. (Details
here, in the review of the earlier NSK-3300, which used the same case.)
Each panel has a full-sized sheet of thin damping foam.
Except for the hard drive mounting system, the interior is identical
to that of the RV02. It has three 18cm fans with easily removable filters.
Plastic sleds make hard drive installation and removal a snap.
Plenty of holes at the back for tying down cables and the like. There
is one SATA backplane on the right; additional ones can be purchased separately.
