If you install the graphics card vertically while using a CPU cooler, you’ll need to be sure there’s no obstruction. As a standard practice, I the Noctua NH-U12S which is a 120mm dual fan CPU cooler.
Cable Management Area
As you can see, the cover bays help to provide a cleaner look. Personally, Cooler Master could have got rid of the shrouds behind the motherboard tray as its redundant unless you’re getting another glass sidepanel for the right section. With this setup, you end up using 2x HDD cables, the 24pin and the 8-pin EPS cable, a PCIe power cable, the USB 3.1 front panel cables and the FP wiring, the fans, the 3-to-1 RGB cable, the RGB controller hub and a couple of them. It would be nice to see Cooler Master provides a little more length for the front panel audio cables.
Also, the PSU/HDD shrouds could have had cut-outs for the front panel wiring and the ports that are placed towards the base of the motherboard.
There is a white LED ring around the main switch to show power. The LED colour choice can be handled by using the hub, you need to use the reset cable on it. The hub does have a power switch to turn off the lights.
