Please make sure that you are grounded properly while performing the below operation to your computer, because static electricity can damage the sensitive components.
|| To open the case, slide the 2 latches done as shown
Installing Drives into the Drive Bays
|| Remove the accessories from inside of the case. The accessories as show in the picture should be included.|
1. 1 color coded integrated ports panel
2. A bag of screws
3. 1 IDE cable
4. 2x5 1/2 drive rail sets
5. 2x3 1/2 drive rail sets
6. 1 set of Video adapter stabilizing kid
|| In order to install the drives into the drive bays, we will need to first remove the faceplate.|
To remove the face plate, press, from top to bottom, the 3 latches next to the 5 ¼ drive bay cage inside the case
Slowly remove the face plate
|| The second step is to install the drive rails on the drives. Fit the rail into the first two holes on the left side of the drive. Make sure that the sharper side of the rail face towards the back of the drive|
If you find that you have difficulty putting the rails on, try putting it in one hole first, then match the other one up and push it is as hard as possible.
Mounting the Motherboard
|| You may want to remove the metal pieces covering the drive bays if necessary. Simply push in and wiggle them until they fall off|
Insert the drives into the appropriate drive bays then put the faceplate back on before you screw the drives in
To put on the faceplate back on, put the side where the three latches are located on first, then the other side. Otherwise you may damage the latches.
Now you can screw the drives in. If you installed a floppy disk drive, insert a disk in it and press the eject button on the faceplate to make sure it works.
|| This case accepts baby AT, ATX and Micro ATX motherboards. However, you may want to refrain from using some of the larger ATX motherboards due to the smaller size of this case|
Insert the integrated port panel on the back of the case. Tilt the panel slight so the top goes in first, and push the bottom in until you hear a click.
Attaching the Cables and Finishing Up.
|| Before mounting the motherboard, first look for the mounting holes on the motherboards and place brass spacers in the corresponding holes on the case. Remember to orient the motherboard so that all the ports face the opening on the back of the case.|
Put the included red circular insulating pads on the screws and then gently screw the motherboard on the case--too much force may damage the spacer of the motherboard.
|| Because of the nature of this case, your cables may not seem long enough. Therefore you should hold the side panel to an angle where all cables can go into their respective sockets. If there's not enough room for you to maneuver, you can remove the power supply first then put it back later after you've plugged in all the cables|
If the Power Led and other case wires do not work, try changing the orientation of the wires and try again.
