    Raidmax Sagitta Gaming Case Review - Sagitta Interior


    (Page 4 of 6 )

    After unpacking the case and taking a look at the outside, I can finally open it up. You can see the internals here, which look like what you would expect: power supply and drive bays.

    The hard drive bays in this case face the exterior instead of being in line with the others. This design is really nice for adding and removing drives without your motherboard and video card getting in the way. The black boxes on all the drive bays are screwless clips. They'll help to install your drives without any tools.

    The clips are a little clearer here. The top bays and the floppy drives right below have clips on both the left and right side, so you'll need to remove the other panel to install those things. The hard drive bays on the bottom only have clips on the one side. The other side, facing the front of the case, has no clips because they would be too awkward to use. Having one clip isn't a problem at all. I installed a hard drive and noticed that it fit very tightly and definitely won't be moving anywhere.

    Also notice the vent on the front of the case. It's ready for you to install an intake fan of your choice, but unfortunately doesn't come with one installed already. Still, Raidmax was thoughtful enough to include screw holes for different sizes of fans. It looks like you could install an 80mm, 90mm, or 120mm fan thanks to the various screw holes.

    This picture is of one of the clips open, and there is a hard drive inside. The clip folds down so that the pin inserts into the hard drive's screw hole, and then it pushes forward a little bit to snap it into place.

    It may take you a couple minutes to get your first drive secured though. As you can see, there is space in the drive bay's hole for the hard drive to move back and forth while the screw hole is still showing through. The pin requires the screw hole to be in a very precise place, and it's kind of hard to tell exactly where the hole needs to line up. It may take several tries to get everything lined up, but you will get the hang of it after you get the first one installed. Of course, even if it takes as long as it would take you to find a screwdriver, the screwless design is simpler and you'll be glad to not have to go screw hunting.

    This is obviously the back of the case. The Sagitta includes a great 120mm exhaust fan. That standard ATX back I/O panel unscrews and is easy to remove, if your motherboard has a custom back panel. You can also see all the screwless slot covers.

    This is a better view of the screwless clips. They are standard screwless parts. Squeeze the tabs on the left and slide the clip to the right to secure a card in place.

    There's one last thing to look at inside the case.
