The first step is to locate the cubes with
pre-drilled threads. There should be a total of 8 of them in a
These will go on the corners of the top
and bottom pieces of the case. Each side of the cube will be facing
another piece of the case, so line them up correctly or you'll have
to do it over again later.
The top and bottom pieces are 5mm in
thickness, so you're going to need the appropriate screws.
Locate the bag that says 5mm on it and take a few out.
Take the screw and gently tighten it so
the cube stays in place. Keep in mind the orientation of the
cube, it'll help later on when putting the sides panels on.
After putting in all 8 cubes, locate
the two pieces like the picture above. These will serve as the
drive rails you normally see in cases. At the top and bottom
of these pieces are two pre-drilled holes. Line them up
vertically against the top and bottom pieces we just worked on.
Take the 5mm screw and fasten the top and
bottom pieces to the drive rails. It should look something like
Here's my second issue I have with the
case, the speakers. According to what the instruction sheet shows,
you are to fasten this to the bottom of the case with three
screws. I lined them up, and only two fit, leaving the last hole
covered by the speaker without enough space! I think they may have
miss-calculated the spacing.
We're almost done, pretty fast
right? Aside from the short and useless instructions, putting
together the case should take about 30 minutes or so. Alright,
let's keep going:
Locate the front and rear pieces
and take the bubble wrap off them. Line them up against those
cubes that we put in earlier and screw them down with some 8mm
screws. It's in a different bag with a label on it stating the
