This is the left side of the chassis, nothing to show you really, but we take photos of all angles. Closed, no meshes, gaps or vents. This is all done to keep the noise level down.
At the rear side we can see a total of two grommet holes, partly for liquid-cooling tubing yet also could be used for wiring like USB 3.0 connectors, CM supplies a cable that leads to your motherboard USB 3.0 connector, but the standard internal USB 3.0 motherboard black is included in the wiring. So whatever you need CM took care of it. See, the more modern motherboards now all have a standard USB 3.0 connector on the PCB, it is very good to see ODMs make a move to that connector, as typically wires coming out of the chassis towards the rear IO USB 3.0 connectors, and that simply does not look rather nice. You get 7+1 expansion slots made available to you (the vertical one could be used for say an extra USB 3.0 bracket).
Both side panels are once again insulated with a noise dampening foam, vastly reducing noise levels. It really helps. The compromise obviously will be reduced airflow.
Along with the chassis also comes a box with additional components, brackets, a little speaker, screws, tie wraps, manual and tool less hinges for 3.5" SSD/HDDs.
And here's where we reach the inside of the chassis. There's a decent amount of space to work in, there's plenty of clearance on all sides. Remember this is a mid-tower. Graphics cards up-to 26.8 CM / 10.5 inch can be fitted. And that means that the longer dual-slot cards would have an issue. Should you need to install such a card, then you can remove the upper driver bay which creates 43 cm / 17.1 inches of space in length. The CPU cooler may be 16.8 CM / 6.7 inch in height.
