    MGE XG Dragon Case Review - Inside the case


    (Page 4 of 10 )

    One of the cool things about this case, is that it is “tool-less” for the most part.  What this means, is that you can open it and work inside it, and for the most part you don’t need any tools.

    As you can see in the above picture, there are thumb screws holding the sides onto the case.  These make it easy to open the case without tools.  So, using my fingers, I took off the left side of the case to take a peek under the hood.  A few minutes later, I ended up taking off the opposite side of the case, as well.  This will be necessary, anyways, if you are interested in properly fastening both side of your drives.  I did note, however, that the opposite side of the case stuck during removal, making it difficult to remove.  I removed this side of the case 6-7 times in the course of this review, and this sticking problem was persistent.

    For a mid-tower sized case, this thing has a lot of room inside it.  The power supply housing is built right up against the top of the case, increasing the usable room inside.

     

    These pictures show the front and back case fans, respectively.  These fans are both illuminated fans, which should make for a pleasant glow while the machine is running.

    This box contains the manual and all of the additional hardware needed to assemble your computer.  Here’s a picture of the contents laid out on my workbench.

    The contents consist of the manual, mounting screws, tool-less mounting clips for assorted drive types, power cord, and cable ties/fasteners.  Ok, lets begin assembly.
