15 Case Power Tower Round-Up

Razor-Sharp Edges And Corners

In its virginal state, the case initially didn't show any danger zones. That changed once we started to install the hardware. We uninstalled the power supply to make it easier to install the motherboard. And lo and behold! - our first sharp edges. To make a long story short, it's better to keep the power supply in the case. It may cause a spot of bother when installing the motherboard, but your fingers will thank you for it. Once snapped out of the 5.25" bays, the front plates will leave behind some sharp burrs that could cause serious gashes if you're not careful.

Snapping out the protective plates creates some very sharp edges

We didn't find the danger zones until we removed the power supply.

    I find it admirable that an article so old is still kept alive. Recently acquired one of this cases in excellent shape at a garage sale and wanted to know more about it.

    Thanks to this article and the great dedication of this website I have been educated. Kudos to you all.
