The Front Panel

The front panel of the Precision PS07 is made of plastic (the front panel of the Temjin TH08-E is made of aluminum) and has two external 5.25” bays, using solid covers. What is unique on this case is that it features two buttons on its left-side panel for releasing the bay covers.

The case comes with two USB 3.0 ports and the traditional audio jacks on the left-side of the front panel. See Figure 3. The USB 3.0 ports use an internal connector, so make sure you install a motherboard with an internal USB 3.0 header.

While the Temjin TJ08-E has one big 180 mm fan on its front panel with a two-speed controller, the Precision PS07 comes with two 120 mm fans. This is one of the main differences between the two models. These fans are SilverStone ST1202512SL-3M models, which are actually manufactured by Globe Fan. They spin at 950 rpm and produce an 18 dBA noise level. The fans are located behind a door and have an air filter. See Figure 5.
