Inside The Poseidon

In Figure 6 you can take a look inside Poseidon case from Gigabyte. Opening it is very simple as it uses thumbscrews. This case comes with two 120 mm fans, one at the back of the case, that glows blue when the system is turned on, and one at the front of the case. It has seven screwless slots for expansion boards, meaning that you can install daughterboards without needing to use a screwdriver. This case doesn’t come with a power supply.

In Figure 7, you can see a close up on the front panel fan. As you can see, it helps cooling down hard disk drives installed on the two 3 “ internal bays located in front of it.

In Figure 8 you can take a look at the accessories that comes with the case. Besides the usual stuff, this case comes with a small extra window for you to personalize it. This case, like other Gigabyte cases, has a light beam projector that projects the Poseidon logo on your desk when the system is turned on. You can change this logo by a logo of your own using this small window.

In Figure 9, you can see the location of the light beam projector. If you want to personalize it, Gigabyte provides a series of pre-made logos on their website in Word format, including templates for you to create your own design. Just print them on transparent paper, cut the design you want to use and replace the original slide.
