AZZA Fusion 3000 Full Tower CaseFeb 22nd, 2012 | By Jared
First step of getting inside is removing the side panels and as you can see on the left side panel there are mounts for two optional fans in either 120mm or 140mm sizes. The side panel does seem a bit thinner and more flexible than other full towers I have experience with.
The inside of the Fusion 3000 is black with red accents throughout. Plenty of cutouts should make cable management a breeze and a large CPU backplate cutout ensures swapping out heatsinks should not require removing the motherboard. Here also are the control boards for the HDD and SSD Easy Swap trays. Each HDD module has two 3-pin fan connectors giving you a total of six. While it’s easy to differentiate with HDDs, I wish the SSD connections were labeled because as they sit it there really isn’t a way to tell which SATA connector goes to which bay.
Each 5.525″ bay has tool free mounting achieved through permanently mounted thumbscrews. Each one can be slid about an inch each way to match any varying holes. The existing bundle of wires for the front panel are routed through a hole and then behind the motherboard tray for you.
A red fan cover guards the rear exhaust fan and red PCI slot covers are each held in place with thumbscrews. A small riser keeps the PSU elevated a little bit off the bottom of the case.
Below the Easy Swap trays there are 2 additional 3.5″ hard drive bays.
Front panel connectors include USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, HD Audio, power/reset switch and HD/power LED connectors.
The backside of the motherboard tray has ample room to hide cables and as noted before plenty of cutouts provide many avenues to route all of the various wires.
