A Closer Look Inside
With the side covers removed we can get a good look inside the case. The layout is a standard ATX format with all the drive bays located down the front and the power supply at the top-rear.

As mentioned before, all of the upper 5.25′ drive bays use screws to hold the drives in place while the lower 3-position HDD cage incorporates plastic drive rails.
The single 120mm case fan included with the Centurion 530 is mounted near the bottom of the front panel and helps cool any hard drives located there as it draws cool room air into the case. The fan Cooler Master chose is rated for 1,200 RPM and is very quiet. Most users will also want to install a rear case fan to provide better airflow thru the enclosure.
Cable management is good inside the Centurion 530 as most of the cables are routed across the top of the case in a neat bundle. The only other wires present are the speaker cable and front case fan cable, which comes fitted with a 3-pin to 4-pin adapter cable.
All of the I/O cables and control wiring come with clearly labeled connectors to assist in attaching them to the motherboard headers and are a good length for the case.
