Taking out the thumbscrew that locks down the side panel and pulling on the level on the back to open up the door the first thing I notice is the PC_TU200’s interesting door latch design. They actually attach the door all the way around and the latch from the back just pushes from the inside out to pop it out. This means the doors can go in upside down or even swap sides if needed, this is because both doors are exactly the same.

When taking a look at the space between the motherboard tray and the back panel it’s clear that we won’t be able to hide any cabling back here. We are limited to a quarter inch on space.

Here is the view of the TU200’s four hot swap bays. I love that they only require two power connections. The space between this and the side panel is really tight still. Right angle SATA connections would be ideal but won’t work because all of the ports need to be flipped around. Hooking up the Molex power connections will be just as tight.

The view from the other side really shows you how much room we are working with. Just imagine we still need to pack a full sized PSU, video card, hard drive, and motherboard into this space. You can see that Lian Li left space under the hard drive cage for a long video card. Up top, you also have that 5.25 inch drive bay almost hidden up top.

The entire hard drive gage is attached with thumb screws. This makes it easy to remove both for easier installation of everything as well as for opening up more room if it’s needed. It is a little odd that you have to remove the entire bottom mount before you can remove the cage though. In this picture you can also see Lian Li’s unique hard drive mount design when you slide drives in and lock them in place by the thumb screw lock. You can also see the vented bottom of the case here for more ventilation. The only fan in the case is actually the fan mounted in front of the hard drive cage blowing cool air in.

Here is the rest of the view of the inside of the TU200. Up top you can see how the handle is mounted by two screws along with a piece of steel for extra support, one for each side of the handle. As you can also see there is a small open area above the motherboard mount that is unused all together. It looks like it would have been a good fan location had it not been for the top carrying handle.
