The side panel of the Scorpio is pretty unique as cases go because it swings open once a little handle is
released. The handle can be locked to help control access to the insides of the PC
as well, but the most obvious feature is the large pre-installed case window with
The plastic window has been
professionally installed by the manufacturer, and is held in place with a dozen
little black retainers that give it a clean appearance. Right above where
the videocard would sit is an 80mm case ventilation fan, that also has some
multi-coloured LEDs on board to brighten it up. A chromed fan grill with
underlying black metal mesh keep fingers and other objects, large
or small, from getting caught in the fan's rotors.
Installation is pretty straightforward with the Scorpio, the
hard drive caddies pop in
and out with the flick of a catch, no screws required, and
the 5.25" bays use rails to hold a CDROM or DVD drive in place. The rails can be
removed from the outside of the case without the need for any tools as well.
Each of the four 5.25" bays are set
up exclusively for use with the plastic bay slides which are stored at the
base of the case in a special bracket so they aren't lost.
