The following advice is based on many years of experience. They are provided as a free service to our customers and visitors. However, Directron.com is not responsible for any damage as a result of following any of these advice. You are welcome to distribute these tips free to your friends and associates as long as it's not for commercial purposes.

Opening the Case:
First, remove front bezel by placing hand on bottom of bezel. Grab the center and pull towards you firmly. Once front bezel is removed, remove both screws on side panels. Remove side panel by pulling them toward you.

Attaching the Case Feet
The case feet are already attached.

Installing Drives into Drive Bays:
To mount a drive into one of the 5¼ bays, first reach inside the drive cage and push the 5¼ faceplate out from the front of the case, keeping in mind the sharp edges of the case. NOTE: be sure to use the mounting brackets on both sides of drive, then slide it in the case until it is flush with the front bezel. To mount the floppy drive follow same procedure as a 5¼ device. When re-inserting 3½ bay be sure to put a screw in the top center hole right above the top 3½ drive.

Attaching the Front 8x8cm Case Fan
Press down and out on the top center part of the casing for the secondary case fan. Firmly place secondary fan in casing until it snaps into place. Orient the logo/brand label of the case fan facing outside to let hot air to be sucked out of the case in the front.

Attaching the Rear 8x8cm Case Fan (for VTI 7237 Model Only)
Align the fan to the four holes at the back of the case. Let the Use the four metal screws provided from the outside of the case to fix and tighten the case fan to the case. Orient the logo/brand label of the case fan facing inside to let cool air from outside to be blown into the case at the rear.

Mounting a Motherboard into the Case
To remove motherboard platform unscrew screws on back side of platform. Then slide to the left and pull out. When re-inserting motherboard platform you must first place the bottom in the case then push top in and slide to the right. The motherboard you will put into this case will comply with one of several industry standards that involve the location of mounting holes, and integrated components, and the type of power supply used. This case has been designed to be compatible with the AT, ATX, and Micro ATX standards. The type of motherboard that will be used most commonly with this case is an ATX motherboard, so that example will be used. To correctly mount the motherboard into the case, do the following: 1. First, line up motherboard to corresponding holes on motherboard base. 2. Mount motherboard by using appropriate screws.

Detaching Front Bezel: To detach the front bezel pull outward on the bottom center part of the bezel.

Cable Attachments
Attach the power supply cable. Most motherboards have a plug for an optional exhaust fan. There are two types of plugs for the drives installed into the drive bays. The smaller one is used for the floppy drive. The larger one is used for all other types of drives (hard drive, CDROM, etc.)

There are several wires attached to the front bezel that power speakers, indicator lights, and switches. The wire connectors are labeled, and have an indicator (called Pin 1) as to which way they should be plugged in. The motherboard will have pins that these wires plug into, and will also have Pin 1 indicated. Refer to your motherboard manual for a diagram of the pin arrangement and ití»s location on the board.

WARNING: The ATX power supply may not operate unless a working motherboard, processor, memory, video card, and at least one drive are plugged in. Some power supplies are designed not to operate unless they have a minimum load on them. If your system does not power up, it may not suggest a defective power supply, but indicate a problem somewhere else.

NOTE: Coarse-thread screws are normally used for mounting hard drives. Fine-thread screws are normally used for floppy drives and CD-ROM drives. Some cases use fine and some use coarse-thread screws for motherboards. Be sure to use appropriate screws to ensure proper installation with minimum damage.
