PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
Four plastic feet on the bottom of the case provide stability so the case won't slide around or leave any scratches on a desk.
The inside of the panel has an air duct with a vent below it. Now in the past I've found air ducts like this to be more of a nuisance than anything by getting in the way of the heatsink, but this one is adjustable. It can be shifted to either side to line up with the CPU, and the length of the duct itself can be shortened or lengthened. Of course, it can be completely removed too.
The interior of the Metal Suit GD is nearly identical to that of the B2. The VGA cooling system consists of a panel with two 80mm fans installed that blow air towards the video card. Many manufacturers mount fans directly onto the side panel of a case, but In-Win chose to put everything inside.
The panel tilts down allowing access to the rest of the inside. One of the fans can be raised up at a 90 degree angle to move air towards the back of the case if desired. This entire assembly can be taken out, too.
Ample room is provided for drives. There's enough space for four external 5.25” drives, two external 3.5” drives and five hard drives. Not too shabby for a mid-tower case!
Hard drives are installed in a cage that swings out at a 45 degree angle. When drives are in place, they will face outward. Attached to the cage is a removable 120mm intake fan with a handle to pull it straight out. This makes it a lot easier to remove for cleaning.
