The Build and Finished Product
I would have liked to install the DVD drive into the top slot so I wouldn't break up the louvers. I found that due to the wiring from the touch panel, this is not an option. However, the tool-less clip worked flawlessly, and the break isn't all that horrendous.
Packed with all my components, the super tower is brought down to size. There is plenty of room for the motherboard, cards, and the PSU to go in with little effort. With the hard drives, keep in mind that there isn't a fan grill on the front fan, and I wish there was one, as the wiring naturally wants to be here.
Here is the wing I showed earlier, just now it has been relocated and the latch is set to lock it in place. You can replace the three screws, but this rack stays in place fine without them, and it makes later use much easier.
Aside from the colorful I/O shield, four DVI ports, and the southbound end of a northbound power supply, the obvious thing left is to plug in the external USB 3.0 wire into the rear I/O so that you have it for the front I/O. I would have expected this to be a 20-pin internal connection.
Behind the scenes I didn't do too much. It is always easier to route the 8-pin behind the board, and the 787 allows this rather easily. The rest is up to you as most of the wiring is already up front.
I just wanted to show you how the grill in the right side panel lines up with the socket of my motherboard. While mine isn't the golden rule, it is good to see that adding a fan here would do what it is intended for, cooling the back of the CPU socket.
Here is the Xclio touch 787 ready for power with everything packaged back up, doors placed on, and hopefully wired correctly inside. Now, where did that power cord get to?
When the chassis is first powered, there is an audible beep noting you did so. At this time the entire touch panel illuminates, but the fans in the chassis start to spin at half speed with dim LED lighting at this stage.
After just a second or two, the Xclio Touch 787 comes to life, and the glow of blue LED is everywhere. The bright glow out the door, the roof, and the rear are sure to add a blue cast throughout the room. Down the front there isn't much in the way of lighting, at least until the very bottom. There are two lights designating power while a third one will flicker with hard drive activity.
