Conclusion and Final Thoughts

A Closer Look:

Let’s see what the inside looks like. While removing the side panel I did notice a detail, the thumb-screws have rubber sound dampening washers on them.  After removing the left side panel you will find that the PC-7HX is constructed completely from Aluminum. I also noticed a white box zip-tied to the HDD cage. The white box contains all the screws, a small motherboard speaker, USB3.0 to USB2.0 converter and rubber washers for mounting all the components. The HDD cage is capable of mounting four 3.5”' HDDs and two 2.5” SSDs. The PC-7HX has two 140mm intake fans mounted just in front of the HDD cage at the bottom, which should keep all the HDDs nice and cool. The PC-7HXs bottom mounted power supply area has rubber bumpers, which should make any vibrations minimal. The PC-7HX comes with all the stand-offs for the motherboard already installed.

The motherboard tray in this case has a large cut-out for mounting an aftermarket heat sink without removing the motherboard. The expansion slots are re-usable and they are held in place with the trusty thumbscrews. The 120mm exhaust fan has a wire guard just like the outside, nice! You just don't see that in a budget case. It also has a tool-less mounting system for the optical drives and several openings for cable management. When I removed the right side panel I found there was ample room for cable management. The front of the PC-7HX is removed by gently pulling on the top to expose the 5.25” drive bays and the intake filters that are removable.
