The Bottom and Rear Panels
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

On its bottom panel, the PC-8FI comes with an air filter matching the vents used by the power supply. This filter is easily removed from outside the case.

The rear panel features another 120 mm fan, identical to the ones available on the front panel, except that it doesn’t glow when turned on.

The PC-8FI features eight expansion slots, a feature rarely seen in mid-tower cases. This allows you to install three dual-slot video cards in your computer, provided you have a motherboard with at least three PCI Express x16 slots, of course. These slots come with vented slot covers.

Two holes protected with rubber covers for liquid cooling solutions are available. The power supply goes at the bottom of the case.

As you can see in Figure 10, the rear panel and the interior of the PC-8FI aren’t painted black, but since this is an aluminum case, the plain aluminum aspect isn’t bad at all.

The PC-8FI comes with a tab for you to install a padlock or a warranty seal to prevent unauthorized people from opening the computer.
