from comparo on the released info..
same size L x H X W.
uses the same midi-r4 side-panel, just not dampened. but has smoked plexi.
no FD logo on the front bezel, moved to the grille area.
not really mentioned, but there is SSD mounting on the rear of mobo tray.
not sure, but kinda like the XL 2 i believe the lower HDD cage can be relocated,
further back (closer to PSU)?
HDD cage is now 3+5 from the older 4+4 arrangement.
for fans i love the bolt-in idea for the front panel, but mounting a radiator to it,
im kinda emmmmm-errrrr...
wouldnt have been easier to rig the chassis and make the front panel just a bezel
to look good and look pretty, instead of making it a functional part?
im currently hacking two V1 bezels for a project, trying to cipher i think waht Tom
was looking for in a front rad location.. been working on it for months..
