The Gigabyte Luxo M10 has three external 5.25” bays, all protected by meshed covers with air filters. The front panel comes with a 120 mm fan installed, which glows red when turned on. This fan uses a standard peripheral power connector. Even though it also has a three-pin fan power connector, which allows you to install this fan on the motherboard, the fan lacks the speed monitoring wire, so you won’t be able to monitor its speed.
