Installation


Several of the motherboard standoffs have been pre-stamped out of the fixed tray, requiring only a handful to be installed depending on your board size selection. The large opening in the tray allows access to the CPU socket back plate without removing the motherboard. The front panel wires leave plenty of slack to reach a micro-ATX board and should offer no problems even with a full size ATX. Some power supplies may have cables too short to reach, particularly the main ATX and +12v CPU connections, however in this case even a smallish 500W unit had no major issues.


The tool-less drive latches work very easily and as long as you only have one optical and one hard drive to install you're well taken care of. Thermaltake provides lots of thumbscrews if you need more. There should be plenty of room for even full length video cards without the hard drive(s) getting in the way, and if you need additional space you can always relocate the drives to the bottom of the rails. I ran into no major issues during hardware installation.



Let's wrap up this review with some final thoughts and conclusion.
