So what are we going to be installing in the Level 10 GT? How about our P67 system, which is comprised of an Intel Core i5-2600K, MSI P67A-GD55 motherboard, Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 2 DDR3-1866 8GB Dual Channel Memory Kit, Sapphire Radeon HD 6850, Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W power supply, Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB (WD1002FAEX) SATA 6GB/s Hard Drive, OCZ Vertex 3 240GB Solid State Drive and an ASUS SATA drive. The side panel door actually comes off quite easily. Once you have it open just pull up on it and it will come off. With it out of the way you will have more room to work with.
After you have the door off you can go ahead and install your motherboard. There is a good amount of room inside so getting our motherboard in was pretty easy. Next is the power supply, which is mounted on the bottom of the case. It easily goes in without any issues, there really is a lot of room at the bottom of the case.
Installing your hard drives is very easy, just take out the necessary hot-swappable drive trays and screw in your drives. Each hot-swappable tray can support either a 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drive. One you have the drives installed in the trays just slide them right back in. Installing optical drives is very easy too just remove the front bezel cover and slide them in. Then go ahead and lock them in with the tool-less locking system on the opposite side of the case.
Finally install the video card, wire things up and you are good to go. When installing the video card you do have to remove a small panel that locks the expansion slots in. Wiring everything up was really easy and all of the cable management hole made for a very clean finished product. Routing cables to the backside of the case was very easy. On the backside of the case you can see the CPU cutout is positioned perfectly.
Once you close the system up and power it on you will notice the 3 fans light up. Instead of taking a bunch of pictures I made of video showing off the lights, check it out below.
