Assembly Tips

Now let’s start putting our system together. Everything is very simple and fast. At first you have to remove two thumb-screws at the back:

Now easily pull the chassis out.

In fact, this is more than enough, but for even more convenience we will take the chassis off the frame completely. To do this, locate a little lever on the lower right end of the chassis…

Push it in and keep pulling the chassis towards yourself until it is completely out.

I suggest that you start by installing a power supply that is not included with the case. Fins a metal latch at the back…

Push it in and pull towards yourself at the same time and you get the PSU retention frame.

It even has four rubber pads absorbing the vibrations and protecting the PSU from scratches during installation. The PSU is fastened with four screws, just like in a normal system case.

Now push the power supply unit in the retention frame along the rail runners back into the chassis until you hear the latch click.

Wow… I didn’t expect that the PSU will be turned sideways, I should have studied the manual more attentively… However, if you think about it, this is the only possible and most convenient way of putting in the power supply, although it is indeed very unusual. If they decided to place the PSU the usual way, they would need to significantly increase the length of this case to make sure that any PSU would fit in. And even then dealing with modular cables connection would still be challenging. I took a 1kW power supply unit that was larger than standard for my system. However, there was enough room for cables on the left and I could easily reach the power switch on the right and plug in the power cable.
