Support Page for SX stl 7.1L rev.2 Case
On this page you will find all the necessary information to assemble the computer within our SX 7.1L chassis. Assembly in small cases can be difficult due to the compact arrangement of components. Our tips will help you assemble your computer quickly and correctly. Just follow our tips and tricks.
Assembling a computer requires certain knowledge and skill!
Training. Unscrew the screws holding the covers from the bottom of the case using a Philips screwdriver. Move the covers to the side and remove them. Make sure your accessories meet the SX stl 7.1L enclosure specification. If you have any doubts, you can contact us for help.
Installing the motherboard. Read the instructions for your motherboard (hereinafter MP). Install everything you need on it (Processor, CPU cooler, RAM, NVMe storage, if used. Follow the manufacturer's instructions). Install the plug into the case, if it is not attached to the motherboard, before installing the MP. Screw the MP to the case using the screws from the PDA and a magnetic screwdriver. Connect the PCIe riser cable to the MP if you plan to install a video card.
Installing a 2.5 "Drive. Skip this step if you do not plan to use a 2.5" drive. Connect the interface to the drive. Install the red, rubber spacers into the housing frame. Fasten the drive with the flat head screws from the PDA. Also, instead of a 2.5 "drive, a 92x92x25mm fan can be installed in the case. We recommend that you install a grill grill on the fan from above to prevent wires from getting into the fan.
Installing the Power Supply. If your PSU has modular cabling, connect only those that are needed. Before installing the PSU in the case, you can connect the power cables to the MP. Unscrew the screws securing the PSU mount, screw this mount to the PSU using the screws from the PDA case or PSU. If your PSU has a power button, set it to the "on" position. Connect the power cable to the C14 connector on the power supply unit, then insert the power supply unit with fasteners into the case and screw it into place.
Installing the Video Card. Skip this step if you do not plan to use a Graphics Card. Move the latch on the PCIe riser cable aside until it stops. Connect the additional power supply to the video card, if provided by the manufacturer of the video card (see the instructions for installing your video card included in the delivery package of the video card) before installing it . Insert the video card into the case, insert the ribbon cable into the PCIe x16 riser slot until it stops. Slide the catch on the ribbon cable back. Fasten the graphics card with screws using a magnetic screwdriver.
Final Assembly. Tie all cables neatly using nylon cable ties from the PDA. Check if all cables are connected including the power button cable and front USB port. Install the covers by screwing them down.
