Product Composition & Features (continued)
When I first heard about the case I was in doubt if it would be the right choice for me. I have a hot system with 4 SCSI disks which always run hotter then I want it to. No case has ever been able to keep them to a normal level. So why would this be any different ?
I found out that this is why : A fan directly pointed at the disks.
The design of the bracket is perfect ! Even space between each disk so that the airflow can run right through them.
Installing the disks was a breeze : screw them in to the bracket, mount the fan and slide them into place. Euh ... my cat seems to like the case too, that means i will be vacuuming this case more often :-(
Ah .... missed that little thing : a filter ! Now that will save me the trouble of cleaning the case every month. Just pull it out and wash it and I'm up and running again !
Now on the to the part of mounting the cd-rom drives. Screw on the brackets (don't forget to align them first) and click them in to place.
Yup, that's it ...
So this is what it should look like ... took me 5 minutes on the first try.
Some cable management and it's all filled up !
This is a great example of how you can neatly fill a case (provided you have the right one ;-) )
Btw. It has excellent feet so it should stand stable and sturdy. And it's heavy on it's own.
Upright again and fully filled. And it looks great ! (from the back)
