Thermaltake Aguila Mid-Tower ATX Case
July 04, 2006

Installation:

Now let's get started with installing some components into the Thermaltake Aguila.

The hardware that was used for this installation:

ASUS A7V333-X
AMD Athlon XP 2100
Corsair XMS 512MB DDR PC2700
Creative 52X CD-ROM
Two Maxtor DiamondMax Plus9 60GB
ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 32MB
Samsung 1.44 Meg Floppy Disk Drive
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 275W ATX Power Supply

The easiest components to install were the 5.25" drives. With the mounting brackets provided they just pop into the screw holes of the drive and snap into an empty bay. The floppy needed to be screwed into either available 3.5" bay.

Hard drive installation was not like it should be. I expected a tool-less installation like the 5.25" drives, and I was dead wrong. First off you need to remove the hard drive cage to screw in the hard drives. The screws had to be placed inside rubber washers then screwed into the drive, which I dropped a few times while lining up the screws with the holes in the hard drive. The good thing is that the rubber washers serve to isolate the drives to reduce vibration and noise.

There is plenty of room for the power supply and motherboard that were installed, and these steps went quickly; no problems here. Here is the system all installed with power to everything.

After everything is installed and the side window and front panel are put back, we see the finished installation. The drives in the front are peaking through the black mesh with the power and reset LEDs and buttons. With the power on and the lights off, we see the blue LEDs light up the interior, viewable through the side window.
