In Win provides a detailed graphical installation of the case, but overall there are no hard tasks to overcome. You will need a long motherboard power cable on your power supply considering the distance between the bottom of the case and the top of the case is greater than that of a mid tower chassis and one with an upper mounted power supply.
A small white label is placed on the motherboard tray to help you select the right motherboard standoffs for your motherboard. It shows support for Flex ATX, ATX, Micro ATX and Full ATX. The numbering system is also easy to follow.
Unfortunately there is no tool-free system implemented into the expansion slots of this chassis. While it’s still not difficult to install without one, it just makes it easier. Some may prefer it without anyways, it all depends on personal preference.
The front bezel is easy enough to remove by pulling out on the bottom of the panel. The panel is very sturdy and you can tell it’s made out of a hard quality plastic. Two of the five 5.25″ drive bays are preoccupied with a 3.5″ converter and the drive rail system. Both of course are easily removed.
The rail tray comes packed with eight hard drive rails on one side and four hard drive rails along with eight FDD/ODD rails on the other.
Installing the rails on a 5.25″ drive is simple and slides in with a snap.
Installing the hard drive is just as simple as installing the 5.25″ drive. Place a rail on either side, make sure the lip is pointing outwards and slide it into one of the slots until it snaps into place.
The case looks pretty nice once everything is installed.
