Up Close:  Interior

Although the 100R only measures 471x200x430mm on the outside, the interior does not feel cramped.  A large CPU cut out should make changing coolers a less tiresome task, whilst the two banks of cable management holes will also make it easier for the builder using smaller motherboards to achieve a cleaner cable management job.  The management holes do not have rubber grommets, but do have good quality rolled edges to them.

Up top in the front there's a pair of tool free 5.25" bays whilst lower down there's a rack for up to 4 3.5" or 2.5" drives.  The drives themselves sitting on dual purpose plastic trays.  Between the two racks we can see the single 120mm fan that comes with the case, with the absence of an upper drive cage giving an unobstructed pathway for the air into the case.  The lack of a rack in this position also enables GPUs up to 414mm in length to be fitted in this area, with this measurement dropping to 275mm should you wish to use the lower PCI slots on  your Motherboard.

PSUs up to 230mm long can be placed onto the four foam pads that add support in the base.  Above this, climbing to the roof we have seven vented screw in PCI slot covers and a 120mm fan.  As can be seen in the piscture below right, the roof is also lined with sound deadening material.

There's not a lot of room for cable management on the reverse side, with the tape measure reading just 8mm.  A little will be added by the bulged side panels though so maybe all is not lost.
