Accessories and Documentation




The little cardboard box of goodies has everything you need to get started with the build. There are standoffs and a socket to tighten them, brackets to allow the steel break-out panel for the 5.25" bay to be replaced, and a handful of grommets to mount drives via the keyed holes found throughout. The bottom row offers ODD drive thumbscrews, a handful of M3 screws, some 6/32 screws, and four hex head screws for the PSU.




There are only a few places on the floor of the chassis to tend any wiring, but you are supplied with five zip-ties to get wiring under control. We also like that we received a native USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter so that you don't have to have the latest and greatest motherboard to have USB ports at the front of the chassis.




The quick installation guide offers all you will need to get the build started, and work your way right on through to the end. The guide starts with diagrams of how the chassis is laid out, and it shows all of the removable components. It then goes on, step-by-step, with small renderings and concise text to show you how everything is done.




After removing four screws from the face of the bay, accessed under the front bezel, and pulling one more from each side, the 5.25" bay is now out to leave plenty of room for the fans and AIO that we have planned to use in here.




This storage rack, which we had to remove right away, had four screws holding it in place. On this side, two 2.5" drives can be installed via the tabs with pins and screws. This still allows the other side to use grommets, and hang 3.5" drives.
