Installation
Installation Materials
  • NZXT Lexa Mid Tower Case
  • Athlon XP 2500+ Barton
  • Generic Ram 1gb (2x512)
  • MSI K7N2G Motherboard
  • Chaintech 5700LE
  • Maxtor 80GB HD IDE
  • MSI 52x CDROM Drive
  • Antec 300w PSU
  • Generic Floppy
Lets see how the motherboard and the rest of the components fit in. Since this is a screwless rail design the only parts that I had to use a screwdriver for were the motherboard and the powersupply.



The rest of the components were a snap. The screwless rails made it quite simple for me to secure the other devices. Even the rear expansion slots are of screwless design. My only problem was, you need to take off the front bezel to insert the floppy drive.





It only took me about twenty minutes to put the whole rig together, the screwless design made it simple. Wires were very easily hidden and there is plenty more room for one of the bigger K8 boards on the market today. In my old case my CPU temps ranged from 44c (Idle) to 50c with a full load, the HD temps ran somewhere in the 30's and my system temp ran about 40c. Lets see if there is a change in temps if any at all.
