Installation was a snap with this system of modestly modern computer parts. To install the motherboard simply follow the pattern on the white paper, screw in the standoffs, remove the paper and screw in the motherboard. To install the 5.25" drives take out the front plate, slide the drive in and push the button on the side rail. To install the 3.5" HDDs, unscrew one screw lift the lever and take the drive bay out. After inserting the HDD into the bay, screw the four screws on the HDD to mount it in place.

Wire management is pretty easy as well. There are two large holes next to the motherboard area, allowing you to move the cabling from the motherboard behind the case and keeping it very tidy. The PSU slides into the bottom of the case, which should be done after installing other components to allow proper cable management.

The case is almost a totally tool-less case, aside from the motherboard installation. The PCI cards insert into the slot, screw the thumb screw into position and you are done. Working with the Cooler Master Black Edition Limited Edition Cosmos case couldn't be any easier. Installing the CPU cooler on a motherboard was the same as any other cooler.
