The Front Panel
In Figure 5, you see the front panel of the BUC. It supports three external 5.25” devices and one external 3.5” device. The 5.25” bays use meshed covers, but no air filter is available. One important detail is that the second and the third bays have a metallic plate in front of them, so you will need to break and remove them to improve airflow inside your computer.
The BUC has a 120 mm sleeve bearing fan at the bottom of its front panel (In Win DFS122512L), which glows in blue when turned on. This fan has only two wires and uses a standard peripheral four-pin connector, so you cannot monitor its speed.
On the front panel we also have two USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA port, and the traditional audio jacks. The case also has a USB 3.0 port on the top panel, which we will cover in the next page.
