Introduction (Cont’d)

In Figure 5 you have an overall look from Dragon, where you can also see its top panel, which features two 120 mm fans that glow blue when turned on. These fans don’t have dust filters.

The panel containing the usual buttons and connectors can be seen in Figure 6. Dragon features an eSATA port, which is great, but its two USB ports are too close to each other, what prevents you from installing two “fat” USB devices at the same time. The right USB port is also too close to the eSATA port and you may have trouble installing devices there while an eSATA cable is attached, depending on how “fat” is your USB device.

The rear panel is shown in Figure 7. It uses the traditional ATX layout, with the power supply on the top and seven expansion slots. The covers for these slots are meshed, which improves the internal PC airflow. This case also has two holes for water cooling systems and a rear 120 mm fan, which does not glow when turned on.
