PRODUCT WALKTHROUGH, SETUP & INSTALLATION (cont'd)
The side-facing, removable drive cage is held in place by a single thumbscrew. I really like this feature and it's not found in many cases in this class.
The tool-less drive bays in the A605 are another nice feature not found in many mid-price cases. Athenatech's approach here is a little different than others I have seen as the "push and turn" locking action utilizes the screw holes in the drive to locate and secure the drive in the case.
The included 350W power supply is a brand I've not encountered before. I'm always suspicious of a power supply included in a case in this price range.
Connectors are adequate with a 20 pin ATX, one 4 pin aux power, five 4-pin molex, two floppy power and a 6-pin aux.
