Introduction (Cont’d)

Maelstrom comes with another 120 mm fan on the top panel identical to the one used on the front panel and has a space for installing another 120 mm fan there.

This case comes with the most complete set of connectors we’ve seen to date: four USB ports, two eSATA ports and one FireWire port, plus the traditional mic in and headphones out jacks.

In Figure 7, you can see the rear panel from Maelstrom. As you can see, the rear panel and the interior from this case are painted black, which gives a very professional looks to the case. The power supply goes on the bottom of the case. The case comes with another 120 mm fan on the rear panel, identical to the top and front fans, also using a small three-pin connector. The slot covers are meshed, which helps improving the internal airflow from the case. There is also a mesh above where the expansion cards are installed. Between the power supply and the expansion slots there are four holes protected by rubber covers for passing hoses from water cooling systems. This is the first time we’ve seen a case with four of these holes.

The stands from this case can be rotated, so you can choose between having them showing or not.
