Inside the LD03 Continued

Here we pulled the top cover so you can see the motherboard and GPU I/O areas. The PSU pass-through cable also terminates here in a receptacle to allow you to feed a standard PSU AC cable here. The plastic flap covering the port can pop off to ease cable insertion then replaced it to make it tidy again. You will notice that the top is well ventilated beyond the fan cutout as SilverStone wants to ensure that they can push as much heat out of the LD03 as possible.

Here is the PSU mounting bracket, which runs parallel to the motherboard tray allowing no blocking or impedance of airflow. The PSU cable coming from the top panel is quite long, giving plenty of room to install the PSU outside the chassis onto the bracket before installation should you need.

Here we get a closer look at the drive tray, which can hold our storage. As mentioned previously, it can hold up to 1x 3.5" and 1x 2.5" or 2x 2.5" drives. The great part is this, and the motherboard tray is removable.

Here we removed the motherboard tray and HDD tray to show how they all go together. The motherboard tray mounts with four total screws affixing the tray to the main chassis on the sides. The HDD tray has two locating pins on the motherboard tray, and mounts with two screws to the front right-hand vertical bar of the chassis. The motherboard tray you will notice has two small square holes in it along the right side, this is to pass the front panel cables through.

The cables for the front panel are scant and straightforward.

  • HD audio header
  • USB 3.0 20-pin header feeds the front panel Type-A ports
  • Power switch/reset switch/power LED/HDD LED connectors
