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.

Materials required for Assembly:
  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • Knife or scissors
  • Case Fans (if not included)
  • Power Supply (if not included)
  • Rest of Computer (i.e.: Motherboard, Ram, Hard drives, Video Card, etc.)

    The first step is to unpack this quite large and spacious case from the box, which itself is quite large. I used a knife to cut open the packing tape. There is a large piece of Styrofoam, which guards the case from the top, and a similar piece on the bottom. Also included in the package is a power supply (optional), front bevel pieces, support feet, plenty of screws, motherboard mounting materials, and all the wiring necessary for internal speaker, reset button, HDD led, power led, and power button. The case itself weighs about 20 pounds and is packaged in a clear plastic bag in order to prevent scratches. All my materials arrived without scratches and as expected.

    Side and top removal:
    The next step is to use the screwdriver, and take off the sides, as well as the top. Both sides of the case slide on a groove once all 3 screws from each side are removed. There are two screws in the top, which are also to be removed. Once you can see inside the case, you will notice a white box, which contains additional mounting material and the support feet. Put these aside for the moment.

    Case fan installation:
    Next install a case fan. The case fan holder is located under the internal speaker, and can be removed by grasping both sides with your hands. Once it is removed, you slide the case fan in, and snap the holder back on the case.

    Motherboard slide out tray:
    It is useful to slide out the motherboard tray while mounting the rest of your equipment. To do this remove the screws from the back of the case, and the tray will slide out. Don't pull too far, or it will totally come off.

    Hardware installation:
    Attach the motherboard to the motherboard tray using the spacers and mounting screws. Once installed, you can install all your other hardware. I did the hard drives, CD-ROM, and floppy first. Then screw in the power supply, attach PCI cards, and connect all IDE cables and power cables. Now connect the power switch, reset switch, HDD led, power led cables from the case wiring to the motherboard. Once you have looked everything over (Make sure your heatsink is connected properly to the processor, and the processor tot eh motherboard!!) Power up the computer by pressing on the power switch on the upper right corner of the case.

    Support feet:
    You attach the support feet by pressing them up on case. They have the same type of hook-on adapters as the front bevel and the case fan holder.

    Front bevel removal:
    It is possible to remove the front bezel by pushing in from the bottom in two places, in from the sides in two places, and from the top in two places.

    If the computer boots up, congratulations! If not the first thing to check is if you have a short somewhere touching the motherboard to metal. One possibility is that you have the motherboard spacers not placed correctly, and your motherboard is in direct contact with metal.
