11) Two chassis handlebars
12) 2" system speaker.

REMOVING THE CASE COVER
1) Pull out the two latches, which are located on the left and right sides of the front of the case cover.
2) Slide the face of the case cover horizontally, separating it from the metal chassis.

APPLYING THE CASE COVER
1) Ensure that the two latches on the case cover are raised.
2) At the bottom of the inner portion of the case cover, there contains a groove used to secure and align the case cover to the chassis. The bottom sides of the chassis contain a raised groove that matches the case cover's groove. Appropriately align the case cover's groove to the chassis's groove.
3) Completely slide the case cover over the chassis.
4) Push down the two latches on the left and right side of the case cover.

INSTALLING THE CASE FEET
1) Align the tabs at the top of the case foot to match that of the pattern of the holes on the bottom of the case.
2) Repeat step 1 for the other three.
(3) other case feet.

MOUNTING DRIVES INTO THE DRIVE BAYS
1) Push out the faceplates at the front of the case cover and chassis for the drives that are to be mounted.
2) Mount the drive appropriately. a) CD-ROM & floppy drives: From the front of the case, slide the drive into the drive bay. Allow a portion of the drive to pear out from the chassis so that it may align with the front of the case cover. Note that 5.25" slots are for CD-ROM drives and 3.25" slots are for floppy and zip drives. b) Hard drive: From the inside of the case, completely slide the hard drive into a drive bay. Note that the bottom-most drive cage serves as the most appropriate location to install you hard drive.
3) Choose at least 3 screws to secure the drive to the drive cage. Note that the shorter the screw the better, since screws that are too long may damage internal parts within the drive. Tension stubs provide enough tension to keep the drive in place.
4) Tighten each screw to the drive.

MOUNTING THE MOTHERBOARD
Note: The motherboard to be installed should comply with one of the following motherboard types: AT, ATX, or micro ATX. The dimensions of the motherboard must not exceed the dimensions of the motherboard tray.

1) Identify all of the appropriate areas of the motherboard where you may fasten a screw through it. These areas can be identified as the only areas on that contain a hole through the mainboard, which is convenient for placing a screw through it. Find the appropriate "H" shaped area on the motherboard tray that corresponds to the identified areas on the motherboard.
2) For each of the areas identified in step 1, take a motherboard standoff, align one of the ends of the motherboard standoff with the 'H' shaped area, squeeze the sides of the standoff together, and push and align the other side of the motherboard standoff to the 'H' shaped area.
3) Place the mainboard over the motherboard tray and align the holes of the motherboard with the holes on the motherboard standoff.
4) For each of the motherboard standoff, screw in one screw. Note that if the motherboard touches the chassis or motherboard tray, the system will not boot up correctly.

USING THE MOTHERBOARD TRAY
1) Unscrew the two screws on the rear of the computer.
2) Lift up the motherboard tray to unlock its position from the case.
3) Slide out the motherboard tray horizontally outward.
4) Perform steps 1-3 backwards to place the motherboard tray back into the case.


INSTALLING THE PORT FACEPLATE
1) Identify the correct configuration and number of ports (i.e.- USB port, printer port, keyboard port, mouse port, serial port) on your motherboard. Choose one of the two port faceplates provided that corresponds with the configuration of ports on the mainboard.


2) Slide the two grooves on the port faceplate into the two raised grooves within the rear portion of the inside of the case.
3) Press the port faceplate completely into the chassis. A snapping sound identifies that the faceplate is secure.
