Installation and Finished Product
The first thing we did to prepare for installation of this AIO was to grab the set of Intel brackets along with the two smallest screws. All you do is slide the bracket in the groove and send the screw in through the bottom of the head unit, and it locks these in pretty solidly.
We have the studs in the backplate, and the backplate is set into place and ready to be flipped over. We do have a huge issue here, though. The studs are not keyed in any way, or have a head that can easily be grabbed, so you depend on the foam as tension to keep this in place while attempting the rest of the installation.
With a pair of needle-nosed pliers in one hand, we did manage to get the washers and spacer nuts tightened sufficiently, as it would spin without the pliers. All that is left now is to get the head unit mounted.
The head unit drops right into place, and all you have left to do is to tighten the large nuts in place now. The power lead is positioned to be easily run and hidden, and even with the fittings near the memory, there is full clearance for all the slots to be populated.
For this image, we reseated the head unit to display better the ID chrome logo on it. At the same time we see we have plenty of length to mount this AIO quickly in the top or the back of almost any case.
It is hard to get a feel for the Comet-Tail LED effect in just one image. In your mind, imagine these LEDs moving around counter clockwise at a pretty decent pace, slightly faster than two LED moves per second. This is, however, all it does, spins forever with red LEDs.
