Select a new case for your computer. Computer cases are available in two main designs: desktop and tower. Choose a case depending on the configuration and color that match your computer. Consider the size of your machine, cover color and it's upgrade factor.

  • Ensure that your computer is switched off. Let all the components cool down. Carefully unplug all cables attached to the computer.
  • You should be very careful and take note of where (drives/board) cables are removed for easy replacement.
  • Use the "+" screwdriver to open the existing computer case. Rotate the screwdriver counter-clockwise to loosen the screws.
  • Slowly remove the case from the rest of the assembly.
