Installation follows a pretty similar path to countless other cases. The hard drives slot in using clip-on rails whilst 5.25” drives use a “lock-in” device to secure them after first removing the front panel by simply pulling it off at the bottom. It’s nice to see enough lock-in devices included so as to allow two per device (one on each side) which just improves security and reduces the amount of wobbling.

The motherboard and PCI cards all just screw in without any problems as does the PSU but note that extra long power supplies combined with long DVD drives might cause a problem. However, it’s unlikely that large units which will probably be of 1000W of greater will be used in combination with a budget gaming case and so it’s not a big issue.
