Removing the Case Cover
Removing the case cover is very easy due to the "no screws" design of the iNet case
This case is a full covering case, the whole outer covering will lift off
Lift up the two tabs at the front of the case to release lock (see picture 1)
Afterwards, pull case cover towards the front to remove it from the chassis (see picture 2)
Attaching CD-ROM, Floppy and Hard Disk Drives
Recommendation: attach the different disk drives before mounting the motherboard
Locate, on the picture to the right, where you will be attaching the drive
NOTE: If you are installing a CD-ROM or zip drive, you will have to remove the one of the plastic sections found at the front of the case cover by unlatching it from inside the cover.
Insert the drive in its appropriate slot.
Fasten the drive with several bolts.
Mounting the Motherboard
The iNet case has a detachable motherboard base support that makes it easy to mount and install the motherboard and motherboard components. This case supports ATX motherboards only.
Remove the motherboard base support by unscrewing fastener screws at the side of the support.
To attach the motherboard to the base support, you must first install plastic clasps then tighten the bolts on top to secure the motherboard. (NOTE: This may differ according to your brand of motherboard)
The panel of the case can be removed if you wish to customize it for your specific motherboard.
Installing the Power Supply
If you did not purchase a power supply from Directron, you will have to install it yourself.
The power supply is mounted at the top end of the backside of the chassis
Once installed, fasten the power supply with bolts
Attaching PCI and AGP Cards
Before you attach the PCI and AGP cards to the motherboard, you must first remove the prop slots found on the back of the case chassis.
After you determine which slots must be freed for your PCI / AGP device, remove the corresponding slots by fatiguing the slots at their stress points. After a while, they should come off easily.
Finally attach the PCI and AGP Card to the motherboard (Don't forget to fasten it with a bolt!)
Hard drive and CD-ROM drives use the larger power connections
Floppy Disk Drives uses smaller power connections
The motherboard will require the ATX Power Supply
Remember that the fan also needs to be supplied with power to function correctly!
WARNING: Do not attempt to make adjustments to your motherboard or system when the motherboard indication light is on. This may lead to serious hardware damage. Always make sure to unplug your system or turn off system power from the power supply switch.
Also, make sure that you are properly grounded when you are making adjustments to your systemí»s internal component. Your body may conduct static electricity that may be damaging to Integrated Circuit Components. Ground yourself wearing a wrist guard or by touching the metal part of the case.
