Installation wasn't difficult in the least, but there were a few tricks to be learned.

Examining the drive cage, which holds both the optical and hard drives, I found out that by removing two screws in the top of the frame, the cage lifted out, simplifying the process of installing the drives.

Next, I installed the motherboard, a mini-ITX board in this case. The board fit fine, as did the shield on the rear.

I installed my selected drives in the drive cage and re-inserted the drive cage. This took a few tries so I could have the optical drive lined up properly with the case's door and eject button. Then I began work on cables.

The last step was to install the power supply. I was at first worried about the space that a power supply may take up, but everything fit fine in the end.
