Outside Look Continued
To help integrate the case inside your living room, it’s best to keep the cable mess to a minimum, the Allure features a handful feature for this, the rear panel is completely covered by default:
By removing the plastic grill you have access to the rear I/O ports as well as the PSU area. In the photo below you can see the rear exhaust fan which is installed by default.
Details on the exhaust fan are sparse, it’s a 92x92x25mm fan from DRX model FD1290-S2033E, all we know is that at 12v it’s way too loud and should be replaced immediately with a more silent fan, you won’t regret it.Inside Look
The left side panel is removed tool less by pushing the black button at the rear.
A shot from the inside reveals a custom air duct which is designed to work with stock Intel/AMD CPU coolers, it will help draw cool air from the side panel to the CPU. All the yellow plastic buttons and clips you see are tool less features of the Allure case, they are easy to spot and work as designed.
The custom air duct can be removed easily (it snaps in place after install), since we plan on using a 3rd party heatsink we had to remove the air duct as it did not fit afterwards.
