Maxtop CSX-CM03B Mid Tower Case
May 01, 2006

The Basics (continued):

Flipping the side panel over you will not find any fans attached to the vents. Instead there is a funnel that should help draw cool air onto your CPU. Taking a closer look at the funnel I found that it is adjustable, so you can find the optimum distance to match your cooler's height. Another option is to remove the funnel and install a fan. The second and smaller vent does not have any pre-drilled holes, but I would imagine you could install a fan here without too much trouble.

On the rear of the case you will not find anything different on this case than any other. I did notice than the 80mm fan location would also fit a 92mm fan. In addition to the fan location, you should also note that there are only four expansion slots.

The interior of the case is just like every other standard case. Holes are pre-drilled for mounts for Micro ATX boards. The motherboard tray is not removable, however installation was simple, even in a small case. In the picture on the right, you can see the rear panel from the interior view. You will find that the expansion slots are not tool-less. While this would be nice, it could potentially cause other issues and raise the price of the case.

The internal 3.5" drive bays are in the standard orientation. They will allow you to install any 3.5" hard drive without any issues, however if you have a long PCI/AGP/PCI-E card it could be close to the hard drive, so you will have to choose your bays wisely. Remember the 3.5" bay with the USB connectors, this bay has a little brace on it, since your drive will stick out slightly further than in one of the other 3.5" internal drive bays.

Here you can see the accessories that are included. It's not much, but more than sufficient for a typical install. You have a little bag of mounting screws, standoffs and paper washers. They have also included a little piezo speaker and a piece to attach to the case to install a lock.
