Look inside & Cooling
Opening the Amoris 6010 is child’s play with the included thumb screws which remain in place on the side panels, so you can never misplace them. Inside a small cardboard box with screws, a quick-start guide and a slightly more detailed manual.
Another look at the side panel cut-out and the black grill:
The thumbscrews stay in place!
The internals reveal a standard ATX layout, PSU at the top, 120mm in the rear and at the front to cool down the hard drives. There are however quite a bit of flashy yellow plastic bits which are worth some extra attention.
The PCI covers can be removed easily and expansion cards installed with little effort, dual slot video cards pose no problem for this tool-less system.
Turning the knob locks 3.5” and 5.25” devices in place, it couldn’t be more straightforward:
The hard drive rack is also tool less and features basic anti-vibration rubbers:
Cooling wise Maxcube uses two re-branded 120mm fans inside the Amoris, part numbers states “HA1225L12S-Z”, when trying to look up the specs stumbled upon several mentions of “1500rpm”, using our RPM meter the fan only produced 800rpm at 12v. In short: silence is important for Maxcube and the Amoris doesn’t come with loud fans!
You can access the front fan by removing the front panel, doing so also reveals the dust filters present, which is a nice addition for this value case!Installation
Installation is pretty straightforward thanks to the abundant tool-less features, there’s also room for cable management, to help keep a clean airflow path.
Several cut-outs are present in the motherboard tray, allowing for PSU and other cables to be tucked away.
The hard drive cables for example are completely hidden away here:
Last small detail worth mentioning, if you’re using the case at a LAN party or at the office, you can connect the chassis intrusion cables which are present in the Amoris:
