Starting with the front of the case we find that the case had four front 5.25” drive bays for optical drives and two 3.5” drive bays for FDD or other useful drives. The case has a rugged look with air vents on both sides of the front and a 120mm front fan enclosure. Four optical drive bays are enough for even the most hardcore enthusiasts as you can install two DVD burners and two Blu-ray players on the same case.
The top of the case has the same-ridged rugged look as the front sides. The Front Panel I/O is located on the front of the top of the case with full buttons for both Power and Reset. Behind the FP I/O are two USB 2.0 ports and the Microphone and Headset jacks for the Front Panel Audio. Behind the FP I/O is a grill with holes for mounting up to two 120mm fans. The case retails for $39.99 and therefore doesn’t come with top fans but the mounting holes are there if you want them.
The right side of the case is a solid black door. The rugged motif is present on the side as well on the top and sides of the door. The left side has no window, which is an acceptable compromise as the case only costs $40. The rear of the case houses the expansion slots on the Rear I/O that number 7, a 120mm fan on top of the Rear I/O, and a bottom mounted Power supply hole. The case is well constructed making it one of the best-looking $40 cases I’ve ever seen. The bottom has the vent for the PSU fan and a 120mm fan slot.
