Introduction (Cont’d)

On the lower section of the front panel Moncaso972 has a door which hides the audio, USB and FireWire plugs, plus a complete memory card reader. It also reveals the “open” button for your optical drive. This door is held to the case using a magnetic latch.

This case has a FireWire port, which is great, but features only one USB port.

In Figure 8 we have the rear panel. You can see the video cable from the LCD display, which uses one of the expansion slots to get outside the case. This case comes with two 80 mm fans on its rear. They use three-pin motherboard connectors, so you can connect them to your motherboard and monitor their speed. As mentioned before, this case supports regular ATX motherboards, so we have seven expansion slots here.

In Figure 8 you can also see the feet from this case, which look like feet used on home theater receiver. This is a very nice touch.

In Figure 9, you can see the extra parts that come with this case: the remote control, the mentioned aluminum cover for the optical drive tray, a pen for using the touch screen, a screwdriver, screws and the driver CD.

Now let’s see how Moncaso972 looks like inside.
