For our installation we are doing a pretty simple build. Our system will be comprised of the following components, the Intel Core i7-7700K, ASUS Z170-A, Zotac GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP!, Mushkin Redline DDR4-3000 16GB, two OCZ 2.5-inch solid state drives, a Seagate 3.5-inch hard drive, and the Cooler Master V750 Power Supply.
On most builds I install the motherboard first, but on this case you are going to want to install your power supply first. To do this you’ll need to remove the shroud. This is done by removing two thumbscrews on the backside of the motherboard tray and one on the bottom of the case. Once removed you can slide your power supply right in and secure it with the included screws.
Once your power supply is installed and you have the shroud back on now we can install the motherboard. Lian Li has already pre-installed the standoffs, which is nice. Just line up your motherboard and secure it with screws. It sits almost flush with the power supply shroud so that is why we installed our power supply first.
Now for our hard drives. They trays are removable so we just take them out and install our hard drives. Both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch hard drives require screws. Once you have your drives in the trays just as easily slide them right back in.
The last thing to install is our graphics card, which even though it is pretty long we had no problem getting it in this case.
Now of course it is time to connect everything, clean up the wires, and complete our build. There was more than enough room at the back side of the case to route all of my cables and there were ample tie-down spots for the included cable ties. I thought it might have a problem with the hard drive trays getting in the way of the SATA power and data cables, but they didn’t at all.
With all of our components installed we have a very clean build. And remember the more clean a build is the better airflow you’ll have! There was not a single issue at all with installation.
