Here also going to fit a graphics card up to a length of 24 cm, However, for the NAS storage it plays virtually no role. Much more importantly, behind the front panel hidden two 5.25-inch bays and eight bays with hot-swap for 3.5 and 2.5 inch drives.
The case comes with two preinstalled 120 mm fans that cool the drives. In the back there is another 120mm fan.
