Inside the MSI MAG Forge 100R is spacious enough to install a CPU cooler up to 160mm tall and graphics cards up to 330mm long. There are provisions for installing up to a total of five 2.5-inch SSDs inside the case or two 3.5-inch HDDs beneath the integrated power supply shroud. Motherboard support caters for up to standard ATX form factor and maximum installable power supply length is up to 200mm with the 3.5-inch HDD caddy removed or 160mm with the caddy in place.
Around 80% of the left-hand side of the case is taken up by a mildly tinted tempered glass panel, so you can see all those lovely hardware components inside. While the bottom 20% is made up of the integrated metal PSU shroud with a MAG graphic decal to add a little MSI style to the side panel.
This is quite a compact mid-tower chassis which measures just 420mm from front to back at its longest point, 500mm tall and 210mm wide, which sounds quite impressive considering the vast hardware configurations it can support. This compact design means the MAG Forge 100R should fit on your desk and leave plenty of room for other peripherals if you so choose.
