Opening the Case:
Changing the Power Supply (optional):
Set the case upright. Face the back of the case. Unscrew the right side panel thumbscrews (indicated by the arrows). Pull the side panel towards you until it is freed from the chassis. Repeat the process for the left side panel.|
Note: It is only necessary to remove the left side panel when installing drives into the drive bays.
Unscrew the four screws that hold the power supply bracket. Pull out the power supply bracket along with the power supply.
Now that the power supply bracket is free, unscrew the four screws that attach the power supply to the bracket. Attach a new power supply to the bracket, and restore them to the original position on the chassis.
Adding Extra Fans (optional):
There is room to install up to two 80mm fans on the back of the case. The fans should blow air out of the case.
Line up the fan with the fan mounts. Use the screws that came with the fan to secure the fan to the back of the case.

I/O Panel (optional):
If your motherboard came with its own I/O panel, then you need to change the I/O panel before installing the motherboard. Remove the I/O panel by pushing it from the back of the case. Insert the new I/O panel into the space where the old I/O panel was installed.
Attaching the Motherboard::
First, install the brass standoffs onto the motherboard tray. For standard ATX motherboards, the standoffs should be installed into the holes labeled A, C, D, E, F, and G. For larger ATX motherboards, the standoffs should be installed into the holes labeled A, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, and J.
Attaching the Motherboard::
Lay the motherboard onto the motherboard tray. Line up the holes on the motherboard with the standoffs. Secure the motherboard with screws.
Refer to your motherboard manual for motherboard connections (power supply, power button, reset button, speaker, power LED, and hard drive LED).
Installing External Drives (CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, Floppy Drives, etc.):
Remove the drive bay cover by pushing it out from the inside of the case. Slide the drive into the drive bay. Make sure the bezel of the drive is flush with the bezel of the case. Secure the drive with two screws on each side.
Installing Hard Drives:
Slide the hard drive into an internal 3.25-inch drive bay. Secure the hard drive with two screws on each side.
Note: Hard drives and CD-ROM drives must be connected to the motherboard with an IDE cable and to the power supply with the power supply's molex connector.
Closing the Case:
After everything has been installed, slide the side panels back into place and fasten them with thumbscrews.
