The Front Panel, Buttons and Connectors
The front panel of the Dragon Rider can be seen in Figure 4. This case has five 5.25” bays, and the top-most can be used as an external 3.5” bay. All bays feature meshed covers with air filters. At the bottom part of the front panel there is a 120 mm fan, this time with a three-pin connector, so you can install it on the motherboard and, thus, monitor its speed.
The buttons and connectors of this case come on the top panel, and it is one of the most complete panels we’ve seen to date. This case comes with two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, two eSATA ports, one FireWire (IEEE1394) port, and the traditional audio jacks.
