Please read through the below instruction on how to open and close your psile case.
Opening the case
To access the inside of the Psile case you need to remove the top cover first. The top cover is mounted without any screws. It is kept in place with a click-in mechanism. Use a coin or similar object to push the cover out the click-in mechanism.
Use a coin or similar object that fits through the edges on the bottom of the case.
Press the object through the edge untill the plastic cover fully comes out of the edge. Do this on both sides of the psile.
When the cover has been freed out of the edge in the baseplate you should have sufficient grip to push the top gently upwards while holding the aluminum case with your other hand.
Push gently upwards untill the cover clicks out of the aluminum edge on the top of the case.
Now, with two hands, pull the plastic cover upwards...
Untill it comes free from the case.
Closing the case
To close the case you need to put the cover on top of the case again and gently push the plastic cover into the click-in mechanism.
Gently put the cover on top of the case. Make sure the edges of the cover follow the inside of the aluminum case.
Check whether the left and right side of the cover line up with the edges on the bottom of the case.
Gently push on one side of the case to fix the click-in meganism. The cover will click into the aluminum edge on the top of the case.
Now gently push the opposite side of the case to click in the cover. Always use two hands to keep the case in balance.
Check on the left and right side if the cover is nicely lined up with the aluminum. Check if the cover is again inside the edges of the aluminum. If not you can simple adjust this by pushing the side of the cover, clicking the cover in place.
To make assembly as easy as possible you have the possibility to remove the internal heatsink element from the case. This allows you to store the front, rear and cover of the case out of the way to prevent any damage to these elements. With only the internal element in hand assembly is an easy task because you can turn and move the entire 'system' around to reach each and every screw or component.
STEP 1 Remove the fan with the fan-rods from the case to remove the connection between the front and the rear element of the case. You can remove the rods by removing the 4 screws indicated in the illustration.
STEP 2 Remove the 2 screws located in the rear feet. By removing these screws you will be able to remove the rear element from the internal element.
STEP 3 Remove the 2 screws located in the front feet. By removing these screws you will be able to remove the front element from the internal element.
The internal element has a simple and straight forward layout. Please read through the below tekst with illustrations to familiarize yourself with the locations of each pc component. Check out the illustrations and read the installation instructions before you get started.
Hard disk drive A 3.5" hard disk drive mounts on the bottom of the internal element. Slide in your hard disk from one side and fasten the disk by using the necessary supplied screws via the holes indicated in the illustration.
DVD player (in most cases pre-assembled) Mount the small and large aluminum brackets on the sides of the DVD player before you insert the DVD player inside the internal element.
Slide in the DVD player with the brackets through the front opening of the inside element and fix the DVD player using the supplied screws from the top of the element.
Motherboard Mount 4 of the 8 supplied stand-offs in the indicated location on the inside element.
When you install the motherboard
do not forget to put the supplied
washers between the screw and
After you have completely configured your psile case you can put it together and install the fan. The fan that comes with your psile can easily be installed using the supplied long rubber fan mounts. Position the two fan holders over the fan as indicated in the illustration. Insert the rubber fan mounts from one side in the fan+holder and pull it all the way through.
Re-install the fan construction inside the psile once it is re-assembled. By fixing the 4 indicated screws you can fix the fan at the correct position.
Position the fan so the airflow created by the fan is towards the ventilation holes in the rear element of the case. The best cooling performance is achieved if the fan is blowing the air out of the case. Fresh air will be drawn into the case through the ventilation holes in the bottom of the case.
Single fan configuration (only possible with low power CPU's) When you are equipping your psile case with a low power/wattage CPU (for example an Intel Pentium M or Celeron M or AMD Geode) you can configure your psile case with a single fan configuration. This means you will only use the supplied case fan in combination with a passive heatsink. When using a single fan configuration it is important that you position the case fan directly in front of the heatsink, blowing air immediately through the passive heatsink and in the direction of the ventilation holes in the rear of the case.
The layout of the motherboard varies per manufacturer and model. The layout of your motherboard may interfere with the ideal fan position as some motherboard components may be in the way. Below you will find a number of illustrations (top view) to indicate what CPU-&-fan position is good or acceptable. Whichever solution you choose, make sure the CPU temperatures stay within the specifications given by the CPU manufacturer.
The LED light of your psile case can easily be replaced by another color LED. So you can change the LED for another color when you want to personalize your psile or if you simply want your psile to match any other equipment you may have. You can choose from a wide variety of LED colors available at your psile dealer or through the accessory shop on this website. Replacing the LED does not require any tools.
Simply unscrew the LED holder from the front element of the psile case and unplug the two connectors from the motherboard. Re-fit your new LED light and plug in the connectors on the motherboard in the same position as the old LED connectors. (Please check your motherboard manual for specific location for the connectors.)
