PRODUCT FEATURES & WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)
One key eye catching feature is the front display which is surrounded by the hard drive and power LEDs along with the standard power and reset button.
When the computer is hooked up and operational, the blue backlit front display will show you the temperature of the included temperature sensor. Place the sensor wherever you want to monitor critical internal case temperatures.
Contained at the the bottom and hidden behind a small door is the front accessible USB, microphone, headphone and optional firewire ports. I still think that the front panel connector should be mounted on the top of the case seeing that most people have their computer tower on the floor.
Moving to the top of the case, I was glad to see a clear blowhole case fan to rid your computer of the warm pocket of air trapped in the top of most normal cases.
*Just as a handy note for the readers, if you want an effective way to lower your case temperatures, a blowhole should definitely be on your to-do list.*
