Speaking of the included PCI-E extension cable, I’ve seen some comments here and there showing concern over the durability and longevity of the cable, specifically because of the 45-degree fold in the ribbons. I tested several different layouts in the case, and removed and re-installed this cable a number of times with no ill effects to this point. Despite the fold in the cable, it doesn’t appear that any extra care would need to be taken with it, over the care one would show to any other PCI-E extension.
One of the great things about this case is that, despite its vertical orientation, the rear I/O of the motherboard and the GPU output do not exit the top of the tower. The rear I/O faces back, and the aforementioned Graphics output is at the bottom. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a vertical tower style case that utilizes space like this, and it really is an excellent design.
