Putting together a test system wasn’t too difficult and as you can see there is plenty of space for any custom water-cooling loops that you might want to do with in this case. Most difficult part was the cable management in the back. No matter what I tried I just couldn’t get my cables in order. Maybe I should start using custom made cables? But the back cover keeps everything out of sight so I wasn’t really concerned with the rear cable management.

Once powered on, the system has some nice RGB LED settings which could be cycled through from the top I/O panel. Featured and non-customizable mode of operations are White, Red, Green, Blue, Orange and Purple. Each of these colors are complimented with optional ‘breathing’ effect for that additional ‘eye candy’.
