Cooler Master iTower 930 ATX Case
November 13, 2006

The Basics (continued):

There is nothing exotic inside the box as far as packing materials go. Just two foam forms to protect the plastic wrapped case from serious bumps and bruises.

The next few images will take a look at the Cooler Master iTower 930's front face, where the most prominent (and interesting) feature is the four drive hot swap SATA bays. In the below left image the iTower 930 is shown all closed up, and a curved aluminum plate is only interrupted by a ventilated door for the drives and the front panel I/O connections and buttons. The below right image shows the aluminum door swung open to reveal a black plastic bezel where you can add up to six 5.25" devices in addition to the four SATA drives. Plenty of room for hard drives, optical drives, and bay devices!

The next image shows the aluminum door closed again, but with a smaller door opened to reveal just the removable drive bays. The below right image takes an even closer look at the quick release latching mechanism of these drive bays, as well as providing a look at the conveniently located front panel connections. In addition to power and reset buttons, you have a Firewire port, four USB ports, a microphone jack, and a headphone jack. I like the location, the fact that nothing is hidden behind the door, and the fact that you get four USB connections, as opposed to the usual one or two.

We'll take a closer look at the drive bays in a later section, so don't worry about getting more details on them just yet.


Although the front door is aluminum and the front bezel is plastic, the bulk of the case's structure is 0.8mm cold rolled steel. It definitely feels heavy duty, not just due to the weight of the steel, but thanks to the solid design, too.
