The guts

Moving inside the case, you can see that the front has a single central area for an optical drive, and the left hand side has room for a couple of hard drives. There's room for one on top and one below. The central section has an IR circuit-board underneath. You can buy an optional i-Mon VFD to show through the front of the case, or you can hack in a Matrix Orbital display if you're clever with the screws.

Acousticase make a set of pre-made sound dampening materials for this case, so I thought I'd check it out at the same time. You need to remove the drive bays from the case to get everything to pack down flat. When they say it's precut, it really is - all the screw holes are already right there. It's a surprisingly good bit of engineering.

The insides are spacious until you actually come to put kit in the box. Even if it looks great, the layout is far from ideal.
