ATX motherboard installed
First thing when installing a new system is to make sure the components fit into the case without problem. The motherboard fit into the Elite 360 case without any modification. Unfortunately, the video cards that we normally use for system builds, the HD 3850 and HD 3870 x2 would not fit due to the card length. As this case is meant for HTPCs this is not a big deal.

Video card length
The installation went normally. The Cooler Master Silent Pro PSU fit comfortably into the spot on the left hand side of the case front. The DVD drive and HDD fit into the spots reserved for them without incident. The Zalman CPU cooler is rather large but also worked well inside the case. After installing a HD 3650 video card and a TV Wonder 650 Combo PCI Express card, into the motherboard installation was complete.
