The Build and Finished Product
The first thing we did for the build was to put our Micro-ATX motherboard on the tray, and it will also house a Mini-ITX board. There was a bit of flex that needed to be overcome to sink the screws, but we got it in there. Also, we have the CPU fan installed in reverse since the PSU intake sits right above this.
We also took our standard Silverstone PSU, and added it into the PSU frame. Here, the screws line up well, and there are no issues to speak of.
We also dropped a 3.5" hard drive into the rack that slides into the floor. For this review we will not be using an ODD, or fan controller, so we can leave the front rack sitting in the box for now, and add it later if there is the need for it.
Adding things back into the chassis should be done in stages to simplify the build. Here we have the motherboard in the case, the VGA installed, the wiring is done, and we even got the HDD rack back in with the SATA cable connected.
Since our PSU is modular and offered a short cable kit, it was perfect for this chassis, and I highly recommend a modular PSU in this chassis. So, we wired everything to the board, card, and the drive, but have yet to tend to the fan power connections.
We found it very easy to drop in the PSU and support frame, and then connect all of the cables. With the short cable kit, there is little leftover wiring, and it does not disturb the air flow all that much.
