Opening the door of the case we find the 250mm fan is mounted on four screws onto the side panel along with two more screws on a black panel. Taking off the 250mm fan we find that there is a motherboard tray with holes for the two motherboard configurations supported by the Phoenix NEeo case: Micro ATX and Full ATX.

The top two 5.25" drive bays have doors that flip open when the tab is pushed and don't have slide in locks like the bottom three bays do. The FDD bay also has a single lock where the FDD would be installed. Below the FDD bay is a HDD rack with room for up to three 3.5" drives. The bundle includes six drive rails to lock these drives into place.

There's plenty of clearance for installing long video cards in this case as there is clearance for a long card. The wires for the case are organized by the various functions including USB, a SATA Data cable for the ESATA, the Power LED and Power Switch cables and more. The Front of the case has room for a 120mm fan mounted to the HDD cage grill cover. The front cover pulls off easily.
