Starting off with the front of the case we notice that it has 9 mesh covers for 5.25” inch drives. There is no door on the case. The top bay has a FDD adapter built in but you can install an optical drive in this position if you need to by removing the cover. The FP I/O on the case is located on the right side of the case. This case comes with four USB 2.0 ports, a Headset and Microphone jack. The Power button is a rectangular button on the top of the right side. Below that is the Reset button.

AZZA decided not to include a side window for this case. They include a massive 230mm fan on the left side of the case that lights up when in operation. The 230mm fan is located near where the graphics card is installed. The left side of the case was rather boring in that it was a solid color of black. Each side door has a handle that pulls the side door off the case. The top of the case has a 140mm fan. The front of the case has a 140mm fan to give sufficient cooling for the HDDs.

The back of the case is rather interesting in that the color is the same as the front and sides. Many manufacturers would use metal in their cases but don’t paint the back of the case. AZZA decided to paint the entire case including the back and insides. There are seven PCI slot openings for expansion and two holes for a Liquid Cooling System with rubber Grommets. The PSU location is on the bottom of the case. Another really cool thing about this case is the use of thumb screws to hold the PSU and rear 120mm fan in place.
