Internal Inspection (continued):

The images below are of the removable drive tray which is held in by two thumb screws. It allows for two 3.5" hard drives to be installed on the bottom, and one 3.5" and one 5.25" drive to be installed on the top. These "top" drives are the ones that will take advantage of the stealth bay doors on the front of the case.

Next we'll look at the CPU coolers, starting with the "shorter" one, which mounts to the CPU closest to the back of the case. The bulk of the material is copper, including the base that mounts to your CPU, the heatpipes, and the fins. This odd design allows the fins to be offset to one side of the CPU sockets so that the second cooler can also reach the rear fans.

The "longer" CPU cooler is much like the other one, but has longer heatpipes to help it reach from the cooling fans to the processor located more towards the front of the case. Both coolers attach to the chassis through holes in the motherboard, and should lock things down securely

Accessories:

In addition to everything we have seen so far, there are a few items bundled separately. The images below show a box of accessories that include manuals, disks, thermal paste, screws, a power cord, a power extension cable, a single 4-pin to dual SATA power connection, and a SATA data cable. Another SATA data cable would be nice, as you'll need one of your own if you intend to install two drives, and the right angle connector is necessary in order to close up the case. The SATA power adaptor cable has the two SATA connections spaced too far apart, and because it is so rigid, I wound up not being able to use it.

The next set of images takes a look at the top and bottom of the wireless networking antenna that attaches to the top of the case.
