Installation

The installation of hardware in this case went fairly smoothly. I installed my test rig (Athlon 2600+, Gigabyte GA-7N400 motherboard, Radeon 9200SE, DVD/CD-RW drive, Western Digital 80gb PATA HDD, and an Ultra 500W PSU). I had no problems installing the power supply.

The motherboard installation was a breeze without having to first install the copper motherboard stand-off. Since this case did come with rails for all drives I decided to put them to use. Both types of rails are made out of a fairly heavy metal. To install the hard drive rail you need to first put in the thread-less screws into the two holes on two rails. Then just simply slide it into the socket. If you were to leave the accessory box in the case you would only have two slots available, one on the top and one on the bottom. I would recommend taking the box out to get better airflow over the hard drives.



I encountered problems with the rails attaching to my optical drive. The rails attach to the drive via two metal clips that stick out of the rail. They are relatively small and are supposed to be inserted into the screw holes. They didn't really stay in to well. It took me a couple of tries to actually get the drive in the bay.

Installing any PCI card is simple. Just pull the device of off the holding clip, remove the bracket, install your card, and then pull the device back over the clip. I'm not really a big fan of this screw-less design mainly because it covers all slots rather than individual ones.


The overall process was fairly simple; however I would recommend some alterations to their screw-less design features for this case.
