Now with the basics out of the way, let's get down to the nitty-gritty of this feature packed case.
As with any Lian-Li case, great looks are never an option. The black and silver go really well together.
At the base of the front bezel, all you have to do is flip a small door down and you have yourself four USB ports at your fingertips. I don't know about you, but I'm sick of reaching behind my case to connect my USB components, it's such a pain in the butt!!
All Lian-Li cases have an easy to remove front bezel, just pull out slightly and it comes right off.
Now with the front bezel removed, the 5/4" empty bay plugs are effortless to remove and pop in and out.
Also exposed is the fan control switch which enables you to control the speed of these..
The main air intake comprised of two ADDA 80mm case fans with a flow of ~30cfm a piece max.
And to keep the dust problem down to a minimum, an included washable dust filter traps any potential dust bunnies before they clog up you CPU heatsink.
Moving now to the rear of the case, you will notice the array of thumbscrews allowing complete tool-less access to the removable motherboard tray, the side panels and the ATX power supply bracket.
To access and remove the motherboard tray, just remove 4 thumbscrews and pull gently and the motherboard tray removes effortlessly.
