We used some of our current test components, including a the Gigabyte Z170 G1 Sniper motherboard. We deliberately do not spend too much time cabling and we only used a couple of ties to hold down a couple of cables at the back. We didn’t include an optical drive as we don’t use them any more. Other than the memory, this is the build used in the last few chassis reviews.

On with the test build shots;
The Anidees AI7 was an easy build. We use a modular PSU which may be seen as a bit of a cheat, but most PSU’s will be modular these days, with a few exceptions. Most system builders will choose a modular PSU. We installed the SSD’s with the connectors closest to the rear of the chassis, though that was just preference. They can be reversed so the cabling is central in the chassis. Again, we used a Western Digital Red but didn’t cable it up.
