15 Case Power Tower Round-Up

Old-Fashioned Card Holders

Like in the good old days, expansion cards are attached firmly to the case using humble metal screws. Thanks to an ATX Y-cable, the display draws its power directly from the power supply and doesn't have to be wired separately. This means that the display can be used immediately as a monitor and an alarm clock. You have only to properly position the two heat sensors after you install the hardware.

Regular Philips screws keep the expansion cards in place in the case.

This cable supplies both the motherboard and the front display with power.

    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.
