As you can see this case comes in a bunch of pieces. The phrase "Some assembly required" fits perfectly in this case (pun intended). The company sends a detailed set of instructions to help you along in case you are like me, "Gung Ho man style, no instructions needed". Then I go right back to the instructions and follow along as I should have from the beginning.
I will show a few of the assembly steps to take on the way to completing the build of the case, so follow along while we put it together. The first part of the process is to install the I/O shield using the screws and tool provided.
Once the I/O panel is installed it's time to start working on the assembly part of the project. The first thing I do is install the optical drive mounting brackets to the motherboard tray and prepare it for installlation to the I/O panel. Looking at the drive mounting brackets, you can see the method of attachment. There is a milled slot for the nut to reside in and the capscrew runs through a drilled hole to line up with the nut. Tighten the screw just enough to secure the pieces together until final assembly, when everything is tightened down into place.
The motherboard standoffs are just like those you would use in any other case build. After completing the tasks on the motherboard tray you will attach it to the back case panel using the attaching method illustrated above.
