Sunbeamtech Zorro ATX Case
September 11, 2006

Installation and Operation:

It was now time to start installing some goodies. Normally I will install my last generation components into a case and leave my current computer set up just like it is. However this time I really thought this might be the case to replace my Cooler Master Centurion 532. I decided to transfer my main machine into the Sunbeamtech Zorro. The components I installed are listed below.

DFI Lanparty NF4 motherboard
AMD Venice core 3200+ processor
Thermalright XP120 heatsink with Cooler Master 120mm fan
X850XT Video Card
2 GB OCZ Platinum PC3200
NEC 3550A DVD Burner
LiteOn DVD ROM drive
OCZ 600 Watt PSU
10 in 1 3.5" card reader
Western Digital 36GB Raptor in removable bay
2x Seagate 120GB SATA Hard Drives

To get the motherboard installed, the Grand Air Duct must first be removed. The tunnel is clipped to the rear fan and has one screw holding it to the hard drive cage. Once the tunnel is out of the way and a few extra included brass standoffs are installed, the motherboard gets screwed down. The standoffs used in the Zorro case are a bit taller than standard so they must be used or nothing will line up down the road.

To install any of the bay devices, the front of the case must be removed. This aids in snapping out the metal bay covers and also the black plastic covers from the case front. The drive bays have small protrusions on the closed side of the case and screw holes on the open side. If this is not enough holding force for you, there are also holes on the outside of the enclosed side that you can insert another screw into to hold your devices even more firm. I chose not to use the back side holes as the clamps with single screws held very secure.

I often switch between my normal everyday loaded down operating system and a stripped down version for testing purposes, so I have two different Western Digital Raptor drives and exchange them back and forth with a removable drive caddy. The drive caddy was installed in the top most 5.25" bay and the two DVD drives below that.
