Building in the Cullinan:

The layout of the Cullinan is very good overall and I really like building inside a case that doesn't have any traditional HDD racks or optical drive bays. This makes it much easier - and when you combine the fact that the 3.5-inch HDD trays are tool-less, installation goes very quickly. While the racks are plastic, as you can see below, they are quite sturdy and lock into place on the drive securely. Once the drive is installed, they slide into the case in front of the PSU on the opposite side that we normally see. This is good as it keeps all the cables and even the drives from being visible in the main window.

There are three mounting trays located on the back of the motherboard tray that allow you to install your favorite SSD or other 2.5-inch drive. These are secured to the case with a single thumbscrew and some clever slots, but the drive requires a screwdriver to install onto the little tray. Once that is done, you can slide them back on the case, secure them and you're good to go. I only had a single drive available, but there is room for more. Pictured below is the SSD as well as a pair of 3.5-inch drive in the lower left - in front of the PSU.


Drives Installed

 

Once drives are installed and cables ran, we threw a quick system together to see how it all shapes up. All of the installation is very easy and our M-ATX board looks tiny in this giant cavern of a case.

Now that we have some hardware inside, we'll fire it up on the next page and show you just how amazing the tempered glass is.
