This review is from: CFI Prime 223 CFI-A5396 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Odd mounting system for 3.5 HD's. It uses caddies,there are 3 of them. I found the best way is to slide the HD in from left side of the case with the jacks facing left,this leaves ample room for the power and sata connectors. Lock them in place with a set screw from the side of caddy. Don't put them in facing right,that leaves no room for power and sata connectors. There's no need to remove the caddies, The fourth HD is apparently a 2.5 drive that mounts at the bottom of case inside the black base the red caddies sit on.
The optical drive cage allows 3 drives,the fourth can't be used because the drive cage doesn't extend far enough. The bottom ODD cover has nothing behind it.
The front panel doesn't snap off,you need to remove 6 screws inside the case to remove it. The front fan screws in from inside the case. You have to remove the red caddies and black base to remove the front fan.
Both fans worked on my case,but the airflow is very weak so I replaced them with fans I had on hand. All front panel connectors worked and the cables were quite long.
