NZXT has made it simple to install your videocard, or anything into the expansions slots. The screwless design simply locks the cards into place by means of a retaining clip. To open, just press the black tab towards the top of the case while simultaneous pulling it up. Once open, seat your card in the appropriate slot, and reverse the procedure to lock it into place. Remove the hard drive brakets , labled HDD, from the accessory box. Note that they are screwless as well. Place them on either side of your drive and slide it into place until it clicks. Be sure that they are facing out so that you are able to make the necessary connections.
To install the optical drives, it is necessary to remove the plate that conceals the bay. Once removed, you will need to pop out the knockout plates using a philip's head screwdriver, carefully wiggle them back and forth until they release. Using the larger brackets, labled ODD. Slide the drive into place until it is firmly seated and a click is heard.
One very interesting aspect to the Lexa Blackline is the front panel Temperature LCD readout, although the instructions on how to connect this device and it's probes are missing from the product manual. To make this feature functional, a few connections will need to be made. Pictured are the the three temperature probes, labled accordingly. To install the probes you will need to use the tape strips included in your package. Simply attach the probes to the heatsink of the desired component. I opted to install the hard drive probe onto my videocard and my system probe to my northbridge, because I have no other means to monitor the northbridge temperature.
