PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
First impressions of the Triton don’t show a lot of distinguishing features that jump right out at you, but at the same time it’s far from a bad looking case. Beveled sides of the front bezel give it a rather classy look.
Front panel connections are located underneath the power and reset buttons respectively and include two USB ports, headphone, mic, and one firewire port. When powered on the power button and HDD activity light (next to the reset switch) light up blue.
The front bezel is made of aluminum and supports five 5.25” external drives and two 3.5” drives. Four tabs (two on each side) release the bezel from the main chassis to reveal openings for plenty of drives. Having to remove both side panels to install them is a bit annoying but on the upside, Gigabyte included thumbscrews to secure both panels. Looking at the inside of the bezel, we see a removable mesh filter covering the bottom.
The back of the case is pretty standard with the exception of two outlets with rubber grommets in the lower right hand corner. These are for running liquid cooling system tubes from the inside to a radiator mounted outside of the case using the 120mm fan holes. It’s pretty obvious this was designed for Gigabyte’s 3D Galaxy system, but any external liquid cooling setup that can use these fan holes should work. Alternatively, an 80 or 92mm fan can be installed here as well. A 120mm exhaust fan is included.
