The side panels are held in place by thumb screws making for easy removal. The air duct on the left side panel is held onto place by screws. Remember if you have a CPU cooler taller than 3.3" you will need to remove the CPU air duct. The motherboard tray is a two piece affair that can fit micro-ATX and standard ATX motherboards.

There are nine raised standoffs for screwing in the motherboard on the two sections of the motherboard tray. There are seven PCI slots for expansion with a plastic clip that holds the expansion cards in place. Note the 120mm fan may need to be removed before installing the Rear I/O panel and motherboard as it may get in the way of installation.

The case has four 5.25" drive bays. As most people can make do just fine with one or two 5.25" optical drives this is not a detriment. Two spots are available for FDDs or 3.5" hard disks with a single external opening for the FDD. The HDD rack consists of four 3.5' drive bays for the SATA HDDs or SSD drives with adapters that are not included. Every drive is held in place by a simple locking mechanism that you remove to install the drive and replace to lock it in place.
