Inside In Win Diva
The left panel is fastened to the case using two big black thumbscrews, but the right panel is fastened using regular screws. The right panel is entirely made of plastic, while the left panel is made of steel with a plastic cap applied to it. This was done to acoustically insulate the computer – the right panel doesn’t need this steel sheet because on this side of the case we have the motherboard tray, which already provides this insulation.
In Figure 9, you can see the interior of the case right after we remove the left panel. As you can see, even though the rear panel is painted black, the interior isn’t. The big steel plate that you see “closing” the case is the optical drive bay. This plate is attached to the case using two silver thumbscrews located on the rear panel from the case.
In Figure 10 you can have a better look from inside Diva with the optical drive bay removed.
In Figure 11 we have another overall look, where you can see the top 80 mm fan. This fan uses a three-pin connector, so you need to install it on your motherboard, installation that allows you to monitor the speed from the fan. No technical specification about this fan is given.
Space inside this case is scarce. You can install a slim video card up to 6 19/64” (160 mm) long, but this case is definitely targeted to motherboards with on-board video.
