#1 is a hard drive rack.
#2 is the brackets for you to put you intake fan in... If you remove the rack that is over it, you should be able to drop a fan in there...

Oopps, it looks like the rack that is over it is riveted in.
It still appears to be a fan bracket though, maybe it unscrews from the front...

We used that case at work for a while. Number 2 is for a 8cm intake fan. Number 1 is where I mount Hard Drives so that they get max cooling from the intake fan. If you note the placment of the slotts in the side you will see it allows you to mount you Hard drives very nicley & you can place them slighly forward or bachward of eachother.

yup, thats the exact case i got, except it doesnt have the blowhole on the top. Cheap window insert and poorly designed door hooks. Looks good from the outside but a pain in the arse to work on. I much prefer my Lian-Li!!!!
nice looking nonetheless, and good job on the cable management.

I hate my case

I added the blowhole/side intake fan

too much junk in the front of these cases, and the windows is cheap

hey, don't knock it. i think it looks better than 99% of the other boxes of crap you will see out there (think: average computer owner/user). my computers are usually in such a state of disarray (due to chronic tinkering) that i wouldn't even bother with showing it off.

i think thats still a tight looking box. even if it is cheap.

yeah, i wasn't knocking it, just saying it is cheap. I have the exact case, got it for $99.00 at Fry's, which isnt a bad price for an Aluminum case with a window mod. It;s just that the window is cheaply and poorly done and mst of the interior hardware is flimsy at best.
I also have a Lian-Li PC-7 with a window mod and that case just owns... easy to work on , well constructed and very sturdy. Yes I like them both, i just like my Lian-Li mcuh better all around.
