Realising the space and clearance options inside a computer chassis highlights whether specific hardware fits correctly. In this section of the review well be looking at key areas and identifying how much space is available.
Weve installed the Noctua NH-U12P CPU cooler inside SB 600 and you can see there isnt much space left between the top of the heatsink and side panel. There is approximately 167mm for the total height.
Those who are planning to use just the upper PCI Express slot will have no problems whatsoever with any sized graphics card since there are no obstructions but if the graphics card sits lower the HDD cage may cause a problem. There is approximately 290mm of space from the beginning of the card to the HDD cage.
Behind the motherboard tray is the area were most of the redundant cables will reside. The distance between the back of the motherboard tray and the side panel is approximately 20mm.
