Ok so what will we be installing into the Dragon Slayer? Here is what our system is comprised of…
MSI 890GXM-G65 Motherboard
Sparkle GeForce GTS 450 Video Card
4GB OCZ Memory
750W Power Supply
WD Caviar Green 500GB Hard Drive
The first thing is motherboard installation. It is a pretty close fit you are able to get it in by placing it at an angle. To secure to motherboard use the included mounting screws.
The hard drive is next, I was a bit confused at first since the installation was not that detailed at all in the instructions. You basically have 2 options. You can install your drives before you install your power supply or take out the hard drive cage through the front of the case then put it back in. The drive easily go into the drive cage with the included rails.
The power supply is the next thing and it was very easy to install. Just put it at the bottom of the case, line it up and screw it in. There is a lot of room to route your cables around the back of the motherboard tray, you can also hide many cables back there.
Finally install your video card and the rest of your components and you are good to go. There is quite a lot of space left inside after you have everything installed. One thing to notice is that if you were to have a large video card like a GTX 580 it could easily fit into this case without any problems.
