Introduction (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

In Figure 6, you can see the top panel of the Prominent 5, with cooling vents (no air filters). The case comes with one 140 mm fan and an additional 80, 90, 120 or 140 mm fan can be installed. We will discuss more about the top fan later.

The connectors and reset button are located on the top panel, under a small door. The case comes with four USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire port, and one eSATA port, plus the traditional audio jacks.

The bottom panel, seen in Figure 8, has a mesh for the power supply fan and a mesh for an optional 80, 90, 120, or 140 mm fan. Unfortunately these meshes are not equipped with air filters.

The rear panel and the interior of the Nexus Prominent 5 are painted black. The power supply is installed on the bottom part of the case, and it comes with seven expansion slots. A small mesh is available to improve the ventilation of the case. There are no holes for passing hoses of liquid cooling solutions, but since the Prominent 5 doesn’t come with a rear fan installed, we are to assume that the manufacturer designed this case to be used with a small sealed liquid cooling solution, installing its radiator on the mesh for the rear fan. This mesh supports 80, 90 and 120 mm fans, if you decide to install one.
