The specifications of this chassis likes a wishlist of computer enthusiasts; there are rooms for 11.6-inch high-end graphics card, a sponge ring around the PSU slit to reduce vibration and noise, the above 5.25-inch drive bay latchs, 3 USB 2.0 ports in the upper panel, 1 USB 3.0 port in the top panel (via pass-through cable plugged into the rear I/O), a large CPU cut in motherboard tray for easy access to backplate of the cooling system, the holes have rubber washers in the motherboard tray to hide PSU cables, the pink cochlears everywhere, a built-in dust filter on the bottom of chassis, and the cable hole in the rear panel to support an external liquid cooling device.

Cooling this chassis includes 2 120mm red LED fans, one in the front panel and an exhaust fan near the rear I/O table. You can install the second 120mm fan at the front panel, 2 more fans in the side panel, a fan 120mm/140mm at the bottom panel, and 2 120mm/140mm fan at the top. If you're running a graphics card for overclockers, you will be pleased to see the chassis with fans at the side panel and the rings which reduce noise.

However, your cooling and expansion options do not stop there. One of the smartest features of Strike-X GT Black Edition is converting a few racks. This chassis comes with six versatile drive bay racks, which slide into any 5.25-inch drive bay any vertical or horizontal. Each rack can be adapted to a 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch drives. You can also mount a 120mm fan on the opposite side of the perforated rack to cool separately. Although you can not mount six 3.5-inch drives with a separate fan in this system, there is no reason that this unique compartments will not work in the other chassises. You can also keep the air to flow from front to back by attaching a vertical rack. And if you need, there is a SSD bracket in the bottom pane.
