Installation was fairly easy and didn’t require much use of a screw driver. Starting off with the installation was with the upper mounted power supply, of which we needed the screwdriver for.
Since this case supports a multitude of motherboards NZXT has supplied plenty of screw holes to fit probably any size motherboard. Installing the motherboard standoffs comes pretty easy after using the same motherboard for various case reviews. If you aren’t quite as positive on your decisions you can review to the chart and positions engraved into the motherboard tray.
Installation for the hard drive is very quick and simple. Just place one of the screwless rails on either side of the hard drive and slide it into the 3.5″ drive bay until it clicks. It gives a pretty sturdy hold, but there isn’t a whole lot of padding for vibration and noise dampening.
An external 5.25″ bay isn’t as easy as the 3.5″, but it still doesn’t take a lot of time. To install a drive simple remove the front panel by pulling out on the bottom of the front bezel; it should snap off with a slight tug. Upon removing that we are revealed with the seven drive bays and 120mm fan.
Unfortunately you’ll have to remove the steel covers over the drive bay that you want removed. A couple wiggles with a flathead screwdriver will do the trick.
The screwless rail design for the 5.25″ drives is very similar to that of the 3.5″ drives except that they are wider. You can then just simply attach the rails to either side of the drive with the tabs sticking toward the front of the drive.
