The Front Panel
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The front panel of the HEC Blitz has eight external 5.25” bays, and the bottom three come with the hard drive cage installed, leaving five bays available. All eight bays have meshed covers with air filters.

The hard drive cage comes with a 120 mm sleeve bearing fan attached to it (Young Lin DFS122512L, 1,200 rpm, 50.92 cfm, 25.29 dBA), which glows blue when turned on. This fan uses a three-pin power connector, so you can install it on your motherboard and monitor its speed.
