Interior (Continued)

Continuing our tour of the inside of GRone, towards the rear of the case features two exhaust fans, these are both 140mm and capable of up to 1200RPM. As a side note it would have been a nice touch to have the cables on these fans black rather than multi-coloured as it can detract from a presentable computer system. There are also two additional spots at the top for adding in 120/140mm fans.

Over on the other side the three optical drive bays have been given the tool-less design treatment. Plugs are pulled out when sliding the drive in and then released to allow a set of pins, fixing the drive into place. A simple method that makes installation quick and easy.

Below there is a plethora of HDD storage and features. There are two HDD cages providing a total of eight options for housing 2.5 and 3.5 drives, the drive simply slots into one of the provided trays. The upper cage and lower cage can be removed to allow for water-cooling (something we will cover later). Behind the HDD cages are dual 140mm LED fans, bringing air into the case and a 140mm LED fan has been attached to the inside of the HDD cage to help encourage air across the system in a much more aggressive fashion. With GRone being furnished with so many cooling fans, all of which are in key areas the cooling ability of this case is looking promising.
