What features are packed into this case?
Starting off at the front of the case, you will have room for six 5 1/4" optical drives.
One of the optical drive bays comes equipped with an aluminum stealth bay door. With stealth doors, you can purchase more cost effective white components instead of buying the more expensive black variety.
The floppy drive bay is housed within a 5 1/4" bay plate and can be conveniently relocated to anywhere in the front of the case. I know personally it is nice to have the floppy drive at the top especially if your case is on the floor like mine. It's all about personal taste.
The lower front is where all the fun takes place. The lower front plate houses the power and reset buttons along with the power and hard drive activity LEDs. But that's not all.......
The front plate in conjunction with the internal hard drive rack can be relocated anywhere in the frontpanel and is completely customizable. With the standard bottom placement front intake will cool all components. If you move the rack to the top, you will be directing cool air to the CPU heatsink. The only way I would have it setup this way would be if I had onboard video and didn't need to cool a videocard.
