Installing the motherboard is pretty simple. The motherboard tray identifies the holes you should be using to install the motherboard standoffs for your type of motherboard, in our case it’s a standard ATX. After getting the motherboard installed its quite easy to use the thumbscrews to remove the expansion slots and reattach them with the necessary expansion cards.
Like I mentioned before, you have to remove the two front fans to install any of the internal hard drives.
The process is supposed to be pretty simple, pull out the hard drive tray, slide the hard drive into the tray by bending it and finally reinstalling the tray. However, I found it rather difficult to bend the hard drive trays. I’ve used many similar hard drive trays in the past and they’re usually flexible enough to bend, but the ones with the H2 were very rigid and difficult to bend. I eventually got it to work, but it wasn’t as easy as I was expecting.
To install a 2.5” drive all you have to do is attach it to the hard drive tray via four screws on the bottom. You may have to remove the rubber screws on one side of the tray to install the drive.
To install your external 5.25” drives is even simpler. Just simply remove the front cover by pulling the locking tab inward and pulling out on the cover. You then have to release the locking mechanism on the inside of the case, slide the drive into position and then lock it back up.
Once everything is installed your case will be silent and light free, as there are no LED lights on the fans. However, you will find a white light, which indicates the power for the case on the bottom right of the front panel.
