Installing the Power Supply.
The case is compatible with the PSU (Power Supply) SFX and SFX-L formats (when installing an SFX-L PSU, you will not be able to install the AIO, see point 4) If your PSU has a modular cable connection, connect only those that are necessary. Unscrew the screws securing the PSU mount, screw this mount to the PSU using the screws from the CDS (case delivery set) 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. There are two types of internal power cable :
-Type A - Silverstone series / Chieftec / Seasonic / Lian Li / Thermaltake Toughpower SFX
-Type B - Corsair SF / be quiet! / Zalman ZM-FX / FSP sfx PRO / AeroCool SX
Installing a 92mm fan.
Skip this step if you do not plan to mount the case fan from above. Multiple fans can be installed in the chassis. One at the top above the motherboard measuring 92x92x14mm, the other under the power supply unit (see point 5) . Screw the grill to the fans before installing. Place the fan inside the case and screw it on.
Installation of AIO.
Skip this step if you plan to use an air cooler. This chassis can accommodate a compact AIO(Liquid Cooling System) for the CPU, such as the Asetec 645LT. Install a radiator with a 92mm slim fan (use a grill to protect the fan from wiring) install under an SFX power supply ( SFX-L format is NOT compatible!) For a more convenient radiator installation, unscrew the screws on the front and bottom of the case. Carefully separate the housing elements, wind the radiator and screw it on. Flatten the case and tighten the screws.
Installing the motherboard.
Read the instructions for your motherboard (hereinafter MB) . For your convenience Install everything you need on it (Processor, CPU cooler, RAM, NVMe storage, if applicable. Follow the manufacturer's instructions). Install the plug into the case, if it is not attached to the motherboard, before installing the MB. Screw the MB to the case using the screws from the CDS and a magnetic screwdriver. Connect the PCIe riser cable to the MP if you plan to install a video card.
Installing 2.5 "Drive.
Skip this step if you do not plan to use a 2.5 "drive. Connect the interface to the drive. Now you can install the drive into the case. Screw the drive with screws from the CDS. Also, instead of a 2.5" drive, a 92x92mm fan can be installed in the case. We recommend that you install the grill rack on top of the fan to prevent wires from entering the fan.
Installing the Video Card.
Skip this step if you do not plan to use a Graphics Card. Slide 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.
Tie all cables neatly using CDS nylon ties. Check if all cables are connected including the Power button cable. Start the computer and make sure that all fans can run freely and are not interfered with. Now you can install the covers by screwing them down.
