Introduction (Cont’d)

The front panel of Diva really draws a lot of attention, with its intricate design. As mentioned, the power button is a big Swarovski crystal.

Although small, Diva has room for one standard-sized optical drive, which is hidden behind the front panel (you can also install a slim optical drive or an external 3.5” device on this bay using the included adapter, as we will explore later). Two USB ports and the traditional mic in and headphones out jacks are available behind a small door on the bottom part of the front panel. These features can be seen in Figure 6.

The top panel from Diva is meshed, featuring the only fan that comes with the product, an 80 mm model. We will talk more about this fan later.

The rear panel from Diva is unique, as you’d expect on a unique case. The rear panel is painted black, having a big mesh above the motherboard area, helping the case ventilation. Two low profile expansion slots are available. The bottom mesh is for cooling the hard disk drive, which is installed on the bottom of the case. Diva also features a retractable tab for installing a padlock or warranty seal on its left panel.

The product comes with a very small 160 W power supply, and will make an in-depth evaluation of this component.
