SYSTEM ASSEMBLY (continued)




The rest of the cables are easily hidden on the back of the tray, though it is a tight fit at the bottom due to the fan holder.


The cross beam that exists solely to keep expansion cards in place has dubious value. It is unlikely that cards would slip outward and the beam can interfere with large heatsinks. We had to move the fan on our ZEROtherm Zen FZ120 to the rear due to this. Luckily, the beam can be taken out easily by removing two thumbscrews.

One of the case's drawbacks is the inability to use DVI to VGA or similar adapters. There is insufficient clearance for the top cover to go on if such an adapter is used.



Two blue LEDs above the drive bay door light up to indicate the system is powered up. A red LED blinks during hard drive activity, giving it a bit of a purple appearance.


Perhaps the strangest thing about the case is the noisy, rough sounding door mechanism, especially the way it closes, which is out of keeping with the rest of the case. Once released, the door rises up painfully slow and the rollers are noticeably loud. It sounds like a very slow dumbwaiter in an old restaurant. The above video clip conveys much of this anomaly.
