The Build and Finished Product

The bulk of the base of the T60 is easy to assemble, but takes a bit of time. Lian Li uses quite a few screws to be sure the finished product is as solid as it can be. First you screw both sides to the floor, and then screw in the back support. A few screws assemble the hard drive rack, and are held in place with a couple of thumb screws. On the right the power supply supports get a rubber padding applied, and then they are screwed into the floor as well.

Once the base is all assembled, don't forget to stick on the large rubber feet to keep the T60 from losing traction.

I then moved on to the assembly of the tray and the hanging mounting hardware that goes underneath. Lian Li instructs you to use double risers. This allows for airflow under the board, but also adds room to hide wires under it easily. The well placed CPU access hole makes installing any cooler a breeze.

The eight expansion slots come with vented covers and thumb screws to secure your cards. This assembly mounts in two points, and with the use of an adjustment screw, you can line it up perfectly with your cards.

From the front you can see that the racks make for room to install two 5.25" drives so they are easily accessible from the front. Behind these, accessible from the rear of the bench, there is the 2.5" rack under here as well. Something to note, if you don't need the optical drives, don't install these racks. The issue will show itself later when you go to install a taller air cooler.
