Internal Features:

In the face of the "Warranty Void" warning, the housing was cracked open to have a closer look at the internals.


As seen in the image below there is a large, yellow colored heatsink thst dominates the center area and should draw the bulk of the heat up into the stream of the push-pull fan arrangement.

The internal layout seems a bit cluttered in general, and many features seem to be tucked in at odd angles and in atypical locations. Two such features are the green PCBs shown in the below right image, whose placement I found a bit odd.

Taking a closer look at one of these suspended PCBs shows that it has a few dials on it. I initially assumed that these may be potentiometers for voltage rail adjustment, but I changed my mind. Although I am unsure of the true purpose, tracing the wires back to their terminations seems to indicate that these could be for fan speed control.

The internal components appear to be beefy enough, and the heatsink seems to be well sized for extracting heat, but in my opinion the layout just seemed a bit haphazard.
