EVGA DG-77 Mid-Tower Chassis Review (Page 5)

Hardware & Documentation


EVGA is not afraid to share when it comes to the amount of hardware they provide in the DG-77. The bag on the left has a handful of 6/32 screws for HDD installation. For 2.5" drives and the motherboard installation, which used M3 screws, grab for the second bag seen here. The chassis comes with standoffs already installed, but here, have a lot more. The last bag contains fan screws, and with a few locations left to fill, that bag will cover you for this case and maybe two others. However, when it came to wire management help, we got only four zip-ties.


The PSU mounting plate was expected, as we found it with the FPS chassis as well. What we did not expect was the additional expansion slot cover plate. The plate offers a removable section, which allows for vertical installation of a video card. There is also a small plastic spacer, which clips the card into the new expansion slot.


One of maybe three cases we have seen to date, which offer vertical GPU mounting, and include the riser card to allow it to happen. The left end connects to the motherboard, the middle is all fancy with the EVGA name all over it, and the right end screws to the PSU cover and is where the card is connected.


The tops of every thumbscrew on the chassis has a white plastic sticker with a black "E" in the center. If you would like the contrast of black on the screws instead, EVGA ships a set of sixteen covers, to swap them out.


The manual shows us what the parts are all for, and there is the standard build guide. However, there is not a single scrap of information on the optional GPU mounting, which is needed. We did notice that while looking at the DG-77 online, EVGA shows more color options, but in our box, we got orange, yellow, blue, and green DG-77 stickers to replace the one on the left side panel. Although they don't have to go on the case, you can put them anywhere.
