Installation

Installation was easier than normal as there was no need to install a power supply due to it already being mounted in the case.

Fitting the motherboard in was a bit of a squeeze and required angling the board slightly and sliding it into place.

Installing 5.25” drives was easy as all you have to do is screw on the drive rails, and slide it into place. Installing hard drives is also easy, as you simply remove the HDD tray, and then screw your hard disc into place with the provided flayed screws. Once that’s done, they are held securely, and the vibration killing grommets do a good job of stopping vibration being passed onto the case.

After attaching all the cables together, the install was completed in record time. Having the power supply already installed reduces install time by a surprising margin.
