Exterior and Panels
Front top mounted I/O shows off modern ports including USB 3.1 Type-C, USB 3.0 ports and a mic / audio combo.
Behind the front panel, we find a nice easily removable fine sheer mesh filter which should work great for catching dust. The top filter is slightly more coarse but still very fine, and is held down with a full strip of edge magnets. The side panels are held firm with thumb screws and a surprising amount of friction (no sudden *drops* of your sweet tinted glass panel after loosening the screws thankfully). The thumbscrews all seem to be nicely retained in place, for your “do-not-lose-this” pleasure.
Most of the panels fit together using a ball and socket style approach, or internally there are tabs which slot into receiving sections. This has the side benefit of holding the panels in place while affixing them with screws.
See the yellow / green Corsair style highlights? Now you can understand the lighting choice for the photographs. Onward.
