    Thermaltake VC2000 Series Mambo Review - Going Inside


    (Page 3 of 5 )

    Internally I was pleasantly surprised to find a pre-installed 120 mm Thermaltake exhaust fan. The fan mounts are set up to accommodate either a 120 mm, 92 mm or 80 mm fan for rear exhaust. This will prove to be very beneficial in removing the built up warm air inside the case during regular use and contribute to the system's overall extended lifespan. Too many systems don't even include this minor addition to move the warm air out of the case and quickly suffer from performance loss due to heat buildup.

    The motherboard tray is also quite interesting. In most computer cases you will use small brass standoffs to which you mount your motherboard in order to allow the underside of the circuit to cool and to remove it from direct contact with the motherboard tray. When the tray was manufactured, the ATX standoffs were tooled upwards so that they form natural raised screw points for the motherboard. It's an interesting feature of the motherboard tray, that regrettably only provides six standoffs instead of the customary nine; on these you will still have to use the traditional brass standoffs. Furthermore, if you are using anything other than a standard ATX motherboard, you will not be very happy seeing your Mini-ITX board sitting on top of these preformed metal nipples.
