Install floppy drive and hard drive:
Insert floppy drive into cage and line it up with the front bezel's depth. Attach the floppy drive with four screws. Insert hard drive and attach with four screws.

Insert proper I/O plate on back of case. Place motherboard in case and secure with screws to the risers. Install processor and ram according to appropriate specifications.

Place floppy/hard drive cage back into case making sure it locks into place. Attach power and IDE cables to floppy drive, hard drive, and motherboard.

Attach power, reset, speaker, and LED connectors to appropriate pins on your motherboard.

Install CD: Attach CD drive to bracket and line it up with front bezel's depth and secure to case. Attach power, IDE, and digital audio connectors to drive and motherboard.
