Now we are going to move to the rear of the case.

One of the biggest issues I had with this case was the lack of a removable motherboard tray.  Once you get used to a case that has one, itís really hard to give up.

The expansion slots are held in place by some kind of weird metal bracket.  It took me a bit to figure out how it worked (something that should have been covered in the non-existent instruction manual).


The bracket is held down by a notch on the case where the bracket fits in. 

To remove it, you have to push up and lift the bracket out.  The thing just pops off.  It's difficult to remove and even more difficult to reinstall.  If you think this is an overly elaborate way to secure the expansion slots, then you would be right.  Thankfully, they included regular screw holes, so I just tossed the bracket and put in some thumbscrews.

Rather than using standoffs, the mounts for the motherboard rely on raised surfaces with holes tapped in them.  I really do not like this system.  If you use a motherboard without standard holes these things could short out the motherboard.  Other than taking a hammer to it, there's no way to remove them.  I would much prefer regular standoffs.

The case includes its own standard back panel, but since we are using an Intel motherboard, we have to use their customized panel.
