Introduction (Cont’d )
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

We removed all covers to see what is behind them, see Figure 5. By default this case comes with its two hard drive cages installed on the lower bays, but you can move them around. Conqueror has two 120 mm frontal fans, which are attached to the hard disk drive cages. Even though this case does not feature a speed controller for its fans, all fans use a three-pin connector, allowing you to install them on the motherboard and thus monitor their speed. These fans glow blue when turned on. We were surprised to see that the fans used are from SilverStone (FN-121BL).

In Figure 6, you can see some of the bay covers, notice the dust filters.

The small panel containing the audio and USB connectors is located on the top of the case. This case comes with one FireWire port and two USB ports. The two USB ports are very far away from each other, allowing you to install two “fat” USB devices at the same time.

The rear panel from Conqueror can be seen in Figure 8. This case uses meshed slot covers, which is great to improve the ventilation inside the case. It also comes with a rear 120 mm fan and what is really interesting about this case is that it has a big open hole in front of the rear fan. Several cases found on the market have several small holes in front of the fan instead of having one big hole, what blocks part of the airflow produced by the fan. The left side panel is attached to the case using thumbscrews, but the right side panel uses regular screws. Conqueror uses the standard ATX layout, with the power supply going on the top of the case and seven expansion slots.

Now let’s take a look inside Conqueror.
