Thankfully Dell have opted for a traditional case design which simply requires the removal of two screws to get inside.
The wiring job is fairly clean and much as we would expect from a huge corporation such as Dell. It isn’t as good as a specialist, smaller dealer such as CryoPC or Yoyotech, but we doubt the target audience would care.
The 1TB hard drive is installed in a rack bottom left with the sata cable taped for added security during transit.
The power supply is a ‘Dell’ branded model, tagged with the moniker ‘H300PM-00’.
The rear of the case has a 92mm exhaust fan in place, and the cooler is marked with ‘AVC’ – which stands for Asia Vital Components. Those people expecting a Noctua NH D14 may be disappointed!
The bottom of the motherboard has all the USB 2.0 and audio headers correctly installed. The Nvidia GT 420 discrete graphics card is not branded.
Dell are using Hynix DDR3 memory, but it is rather embarrassing to see that they aren’t using heatspeaders on these specific modules. They add so little cost to the overall build but can improve temperatures long term and in hotter running climates.
