Introduction (Cont’d)

In Figure 5 you see the case without its washable dust filter, where you can see the two front 120 mm fans. The red arrow is pointing the small fan speed controller that this case has. This circuit can control the speed of all four fans of the case (you have to manually install the fans you want to control to this circuit). Only three speed options are available, low, medium and high, and the circuit controls the speed of all fans at the same time (no individual control).

On the top panel you can find a panel containing one eSATA port, four USB ports, one FireWire (IEEE1394) port, mic in and headphones jacks, plus the power and reset switches. The presence of an eSATA port is perfect.

Finally we have the rear panel in Figure 8. Here the design is different from traditional cases. The power supply is located in the middle of the case, and not on the top. You can also see the presence of two rear 120 mm fans and four holes to be used by water cooling systems. These holes use a rubber cover, so you won’t need to break your case to pass hoses. Tyr PC-X500 has seven expansion slots, just like 99% of the cases on the market. See also how the side panels and the power supply are fastened to the case using thumbscrews.

Let’s see how Tyr PC-X500 looks like inside.
