👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅12-01-12

Opening the door on the P280 reveals foam insulation to provide additional noise reduction and there are also 3 hinges and a magnet for closing this door. In the lower region there is a removable fan filter and above it 3x 5.25” drive bay covers can be found but are removable from the inside of the chassis.

Front panel connectivity consists of the following ports:

Further back, on the top of the case are dual 120mm fans – these are two speed and are configured to be exhaust fans. Both are connected the rear fan controller.

On the underside of the case are 4 rubber feet to prevent the case from slipping or scratching on smooth surfaces and there is a filter for the PSU fan – this can be removed from the outside of the case, more on this later.
