MORE PHYSICAL DETAILS
The first photo below shows the inside panel, which has hardly any vents at all. This ensures that the air that the fan blows in is vented out the back to the outside of the case.
The photos with the cover removed show aluminum heatsinks that are quite small -- presumably to make room for the large fan:
There is additional circuitry on two smaller PCBs. One of these is clearly a fan control circuit board. This is the one attached to one of the heatsinks. The little black block next to it on the heatsink is the thermistor, which is screwed and hot-glued to the HS.
The output capacitors on this board are relatively small, like the heatsinks. They had to be short enough to make room the for 1" depth of the 120mm fan. The unpopulated portion of the printed circuit board by the capacitors is unusual, compared to the many other already seen that were OEM'ed by Fortron-Source. On most of those, there is no bare space on the board at all. Whether this lower PCB parts density means anything is not a question easily answered.
There are a total of 6 wire sets:
32" long cable with two 4-pin IDE drive connectors and one floppy drive power connector
24" long cable with one 4-pin IDE drive connector and one floppy drive power connector
- 24" long cable with two 4-pin IDE drive connectors
21" long cable for main 20-pin ATX connector
21" long cable for dual 12V (P4) connector
21" long cable for 3.3V connector
