Inside of the cardboard box that was stuffed in the hard drive bays is where you will find these goodies. There are three smaller, tool-less clips for the 3.5" drives and five clips for the 5.25" bays. Above them is the floppy drive cover to swap out with a full cover, if you install a floppy drive that is. To the left there are seven screws for mounting hard drives if the clips aren't enough, and the same goes for four screws for optical drive mounting. To the right side there are thirteen screws for motherboard mounting or replacing lost PSU or panel screws. That leaves the two extra risers and an extra thumbscrew to finish it all off.

There is a fold out sheet of instructions to help you through the build process. Once I skimmed it as I took this image; I had no need to refer to it later as the case is pretty intuitive.

Here I removed the power supply just so I could show it off a little, as it is rough to do inside the chassis. There are plenty of leads and an included power cord, so getting this up and running should be a snap.

Here you can get a bit of information about what the power supply is capable of powering. Two +12V lines at 15A each isn't going to run Fermi's in SLI, but it should hold its own with most single GPU builds and has potential for say a pair of HD 5770's.

Just in case you wanted to know a bit more about the power supply, other than what the basic sticker information explains.

I just wanted to lay out the wiring so it was a bit easier to see the lines and connections. In case you are wondering, the leads are about fourteen inches to the first connection, and if they branch, the sections are roughly six inches each. Plenty to get around inside of the USP 100!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
