The CFI-A5000 has five expansion slots, so there is some room for extra components, which may be a deciding factor when planning on the longevity and build type of a PC system. The case has one 5.25" drive bays, which is enough room for an optical drive but little else, though with nine 3.5" drive bays, there is enough room for multiple hard drives anyway. Plus, you can mount an SSD without having to use an adapter, as the CFI-A5000 has one 2.5" drive bay.
Made primarily of Steel, the CFI-A5000 is built to be strong and well-ventilated. Steel cases are generally fairly cheap and sturdy, but also tend to be quite heavy. Whatever your case's material, it is important to keep a consistent airflow so that heat doesn't build up inside. It is therefore advised that you make use of the available built-in case fans and fan installation sections.
