Ultra has followed the Intel specifications, providing an extra rear output fan, size 120mm, additionally they provided a 120mm in-take fan, which is hidden inside the front panel. The side panel features an air duct which works best with stock CPU coolers. The VGA area has not been neglected, a rectangular cut-out is provided in the bottom section the side panel.
The 120mm fan can be heard clearly at 12v and will need to be undervolted to make it silent. Each fan is equipped with a 3-pin power connector, no 4-pin adapter in sight:
The front fan pushes air through this honeycombed grill at the front, would have loved to see a dust filter here instead though:
The 120mm fans in the case are part number E252956 not a lot info available about these on the web, a 0.18A probably between 1500-2000rpm.Installation
Installation is pretty straight forward, the PSU goes in first at the top, secured with 4 screws, than the motherboard goes in, Ultra has already screwed in the most commonly used stand offs. The two top PCI brackets can be removed/installed by removing the screw, the other PCI brackets are more permanently open once you remove the metal plate.
The hard drive and optical drive installation is very similar, you remove the black plastic cover at the side and slide in the drive, making sure the holes line up:
Then you place the cover back and turn the center piece 90°, thereby fixing it in place:
The hard drive installation is similar and quite easy:
The major drawback of this system is that the fit is not as secure as we had hoped, you can still push the HDD and optical drive out of its lock without too much force; the 5.25” drive you can secure with screws to make a very tight fit, but the hard drives will always be fixed in this manner, leaving room of vibration noise to slip in and with more drives in the bay, really increase the noise level.
