The top of the chassis is a real treat alright. Here we can find the front-panel I/O - which is a significant change over the original chassis. We see a fan LED on/off switch, USB 3.0 x 2 (internal), USB 2.0 x 2, Mic x 1, Audio x 1 (supports HD/AC97 audio), a reset switch, and a power switch. Cooler Master stripped away the eSATA header.
Have a peek at the top latch / panel...
The panel, which can slide backwards, functions as a protective cover for a feature called X-Dock, a SATA HDD/SSD dock.
Literally if you have your HDDs setup in AHCI mode you could pop an HDD in and out here on the fly within Windows. If not, like 99% of you guys, you simply slide in the HDD, start up your system and you are good to go. Extremely handy, and again, something extremely simple that makes the product shine.
Behind the HDD dock we can see a large mesh, underneath which you can house two 120mm fans or a dual 120mm radiator. We'll show you that in a minute from the inside out though.
