Not only the front is heavily modified, also the side panel has some prefab cutting and pasting! The same blue coloured Plexiglas is used to fill up the holes made by the cut-out. No sharp points were discovered during my trip around the edges with my finger, really 1st class work.
The 2 side panels are attached by thumbscrews. At the back of each panel you´ll find a plastic ring which really comes in handy when removing them.
Once we open up the case we can see all the goodies that are kept in the belly of this beauty. It comes with a sound sensitive neon light, a yellow rounded ATA100 and floppy cable and a Chinese/Japanese guideline on how to install everything.
The contents of the case layed spread out on my flashy tablecloth!
We all live in a YELLOW ATA cable, YELLOW ATA Cable

If your Japanese or Chinese isn´t good enough to read the instructions then I can promise you that the pictures are very self explanatory. Connecting the PSU to the pass-through connector enables the case to have enough juice to power up all the bells and whistles: a special connector for your HD led and a temp sensor, they provide the front display with a nice readout in style of 25.5°C and an indication of HD activity
The installed clear fan is almost noiseless but still moves some air, the only problem I had was connecting the power of the fan to the fan header on the motherboard... the cable is just.. too short! You have to wiggle your hands into the case while closing the side panel, I hope they soon realise this very unfortunate error!
The air duct delivers a more direct stream of cool air onto your CPU!
