Starting from the front of the case the case has no front door. There are five 5.25" drive bays on the front of the case with one having a 3.5" adapter for the floppy drive if needed. Under the 3.5" adapter is the front panel IO cover. On this case it consists of two USB 2.0 ports, a IEEE-1394a port, a Mic jack and a speaker jack. The power button is under the FP IO with a small Reset button under that. Under the Reset button is a HDD LED and a Power LED indicator.

Airflow is a consideration in any case design. The Seenium case has two vent holes on the top of the case for fans up to 180mm. There are also two fans on the side door of the case for two more fans up to 180mm size. The right hand side of the case has another vent hole allowing for up to a 100mm fan to be installed in that position. There's room on the bottom of the case for another fan of up to 180mm. As you can see, airflow on this case is abundant.

Bottom of case


The rear of the case is fairly standard for a mainstream case except for one thing, the PSU is located on the bottom of the case instead of the top as on most on the market. There is room for a 120mm fan next to the Back Panel area. The case has 7 PCI Slots which is enough for most motherboards. The left side of the case doesn't have a window, meaning that you can't see inside the case if fans are in the fan positions.
