PRODUCT PICTORAL AND WALKTHROUGH
Once removed from the packaging, the full case can be seen. Size-wise, it is truly tiny, measuring a bare 13” x 5.5”x 11”. There is no case window, but there is a large, mesh grille that gives cool air to the CPU.
The front of the case holds room for one optical drive and one floppy drive or other 3.5” peripheral.
Included on the front and center of the case is the power and reset buttons, as well as an HDD activity light.
Near the optical drive bay you'll find four USB ports, a FireWire port, and audio jacks. It was nice to see more than the standard two-port USB arrangement. Two extra ports are always a good thing.
The backside of the case offers four expansion slots and a mesh ventilation panel. There is no fan mount.
Opening up the case reveals the main cooling feature of the Mountain Jade.
