Once we pop the chassis on it's side, we can see the bottom side, the case is resting on four rubber feet preventing resonating noises. There are no meshes for ventilation here though.
So both sides have two fan mounts. Each side has one fan factory installed. See that little switch all the way to the far left in the middle? That is actually a three stage fan controller. It's for the two fans included and allows you to put the fan RPM at 3, 5 or 12 Volts. Even at low RPM these fans offer quite a bit of airflow whilst creating very little noise. Me likey.
At the backside, you can see a mount for another two fans, 80mm though. The chassis is ATX compatible and that means you can seriously chuck it full with enthusiast gear. It supports 7 cards and you can mount the PSU vertically to the right.
By removing two screws, we can pull of the top panel. It's a quality panel BTW, not at all thin so you can stack other components into it if you want to. With a common 445mm case width that should offer you lots of flexibility. The inside of the top panel has been sound dampenend.
