  • EVGA 112-CK-NF77-A1 nForce e-7150/630i Micro-ATX motherboard
  • LG 16X DVD-RW
  • 2GB Corsair DDR2-1066MHz memory
  • ATI HD3650 video card
  • WD Raptor 36GB Raptor SATA HDD
  • SilverStone SG04-FH case
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E5200 CPU
  • SilverStone Strider series low noise 1000W PSU

The first step to installing a new system is to make sure the components are assembled. The system I chose to install is fairly typical mid-range one with a Core 2 Duo, a HD 3650 2GB of memory and 36GB Raptor HDD to boot. The nForce e-7150/630i motherboard from EVGA is a good choice as it offers 3 PCI Expansion slots.

To start with remove the sides of the case by pulling them backward and outward. The next step is to remove the FDD bracket to get to the motherboard tray. This is accomplished by removing three screws then pulling the bracket outward from the case. Mounting the motherboard at this point is the same as any other case: Insert standoffs, remove the I/O panel and PCI brackets, mount the board and screw it in. Install the PCI devices, and attach the cables.

To install the DVD or Blu-ray drive you need to release the screw holding the 5.25 drive bay door in place, open the 5.25 bay door, insert the drive and secure it into place with screws. Use the included adhesive foam pad and 5.25 optical drive cover to attach the cover for the drive close the door and re-attach the screw. One thing to note is the case cannot use full bezel DVD-ROMs. The LG 16X DVD-ROM we use for system builds works great however.

To mount the HDD you first need to remove the HDD rack from the case. This is done by releasing the four screws on the HDD cage, and swinging open the HDD cage away from the case. There are two positions on the HDD cage for 3.5 HDDs. Mount the HDDs using screws on the bottom of the case and replace the assembly onto the case. Mount the PSU on the right side of the case using screws to hold the PSU in place, attach power cables including the 4-pin extender and you are done with the system build.
