To begin with I chose to install the drives. All of which require the rubber rails which clip on the sides allowing the drives to slot into place.

The ODD requires the front panel to be removed, which is done by just unclipping the plastic clips on the inside. The drive just slots into place – no fuss at all and all very simple. Make sure the corresponding grill is taken out of the front panel and then attach it back onto the chassis.

The hard drive follows the same principles: clip on the rails and then slot it into place.

The rest is all fairly similar to any chassis with the PSU slotting in at the top; this is made slightly harder as the cables which come in from the top get in a way a little bit.

After screwing in the motherboard, the graphics card then clamps into place using the tool-less PCI slots.

The rails are probably the easiest I have encountered and the rubber material they are made out of makes them ideal to stop vibrations – very easy to use indeed.
