Case Build & Finished Product
For us, no matter if it is fresh out of the box, or when our build was completed, we had no need to remove the panel in the bezel and detract from the geometric design it offers.
The standoffs went into the case fine, but the threads inside them were not done properly, making it tough to screw down the motherboard. The AIO went in easily enough, and we did not have issues installing the video card, but it is sagging quite a bit in the Gram.
The dust shield was no problem to lock it into place, and when it came to the video card, the holes lined up well, just remember to move the cover plate, and that you have to break out the lower expansion slots. When it came to the PSU, it is simple to slide in from the right side of the Gram, and once on the rubber supports, it lined up perfectly with the chassis to be screwed into place.
Wire management was quick and simple to do. The 24-pin and GPU wires fit in the groove to the right of the motherboard but are tough to pass through the bent metal cover. A bit extra length to the front I/O wires allows them to stay away from the 2.5" drive trays and still run where they need to be. The 8-pin lead reached the motherboard, and as you can see, fills the space left behind the motherboard.
None of the wiring impeded us in placing the right side of the chassis back onto the frame, but the door does warp corner to corner and need extra love to get the tabs into the frames. The left side of the case warps much less, but there is one corner that will need attention to make certain the tabs are locked. Once they are on the chassis, the holes line up well to reinstall the thumbscrews.
Once we added some power to the Gram, it is easy to tell it is alive. The front of the Gram sports a backlit power icon, where the stem at the top of the circle is the power switch too. We also can see the bright glow flooding the interior space, via the 120mm fan installed as the exhaust.
Noises are minimal, as we only saw 31 dB on our sound meter. As to the four bars across the front, those will flash red when the HDD is active, but we missed that flicker or three when taking this image.
