Both side panels are easily removed with two thumbscrews. The insides are all painted black, which is important with a windowed case, to improve the appearance. The side panel has a huge 200mm fan mounted acting as an exhaust, which is also a white LED design with black blades.
First impressions are certainly positive, as there is acres of space inside to build a system. Xigmatek literature highlights that this case will also accommodate the whopping eVGA Classified SR2 motherboard.
There are well positioned cable routing holes staggered around the backplate to ensure the cleanest system build possible. As expected, the obligatory CPU cutout hole is included to help with cooler installation.
The 140mm exhaust fan is a white LED model with black blades, perfectly matching the rest of the design. The expansion slots use a traditional screw system to lock graphics cards and other components in place. It is well made, but not quite as nice as the Lian Li metal lever system.
The two front mounted fans are installed right at the bottom of the case. These are again white LED versions with black blades to keep the appearance totally uniform throughout. We also like how Xigmatek have included two small circuit boards to help with cable routing. All the 3 pin fan headers can be powered from single molex connectors.
