Outside of the case continued

It's not quite outside the case, but it's not quite inside either, but I'll call it the outside. First off, the 5.25" bays and the GREAT drive rail system. Remember way back when I raved about Antec's great drive rail system on the Sonata? Well, Thermaltake has something just like it:

There were no surprises when it came to the optical bays. They just slid right in.

As for the 3.5" bays, it had a 2 drive tray as with the Sonata. There was one notable improvement however. If you look closely on the bay cover right in front of the screw, you'll see a little black tab. That was part of the cover and helped to ensure that the cover stayed in place and didn't flop around. Not a big deal I know, but I'm really impressed with the attention to details here. As with the Sonata, this was a little akward, but I quickly got over it.

So far the case is pretty swankalicious. Let's take a look at the inside for real now.
