ASUS DIGIMatrix Inside: Assembly
So, let’s find out what we have to do to create a fully-fledged home entertainment center from the ASUS DIGIMatrix barebone system. When the case cover has been removed (by the way, the screws ASUS uses for case cover fastening cannot be unscrewed with your fingers: you will need a crosstip screwdriver), you will see the following picture:
The saying “there is not an inch of room” is the most exact phrase to describe what you see inside ASUS DIGIMatrix. As you could have already guessed no additional devices can fit into this system besides those, which are already there. However, ASUS took good care of those users, who will be assembling this system on their own: all major components can be easily reached when the case is open.
The memory slots can be reached freely, the CPU should be installed after removing the cooler, which is fastened to the socket with 5 screws. And the HDD is put into a closed chassis, with a cover fastened to the framing with two screws. These three devices are everything you need to complete your ASUS DIGIMatrix based system, as everything you might need is already there. Moreover, there are no empty slots there. As a result, you can close the case and power up the system when the CPU, the memory and the hard disk drive have been successfully installed.
The only inconvenience you can come across when assembling ASUS DIGIMatrix is the location of the Clear CMOS jumper, which is situated next to the HDD chassis and is very hard to reach. However, you will need it very rarely, I should say, especially since you will hardly undertake any CPU overclocking experiments or the like in your ASUS DIGIMatrix system.
