Case Build & Finished Product

We started the build by removing all but the motherboard brackets. Then we inserted our power cable and mounted the PSU brackets into the extrusion.

Next up, we mounted the motherboard. Be sure to install the I/O shield as this case gets cramped quickly, and you do not want to disassemble to add the I/O shield. Here you can see that with just the PSU and motherboard in place; space is already filling up quickly.

As I was installing brackets and planning the build-out, I figured I should show a shot of the hardware used to attach the brackets to the aluminum extrusions. You will notice its simply a square nut that slots into a runner in the extrusion and a screw threads into it.

Here is the aluminum extrusion frame with the nut and screw we just showed in place. As you can see, there are a few notches in each extrusion where you can insert or remove the screw/nut combos. This allows you to adjust placement; however, you need it.

With the screws for the universal vertical brackets in place, we install the GPU next. We also cable the GPU at this point along with everything else except the AIO cabling and fans. This will be much harder to adjust once the AIO is installed, as you will see soon.

Here are the previously mentioned vertical brackets, and as you can likely tell, they are quite a bit longer than the horizontal ones. The horizontal units only need to span the 180mm approximate width, while these vertical brackets must span from the bottom to top extrusion.
