Windows 7: Question About NZXT Case

Question About NZXT Case

Today I opened my NZXT Apollo case and was going to install a card. I found that it is a screwless design. Does anyone have a NZXT case and could give me a hint on how the screwless card slots work? I thought I would give this a shot before I U/L a picture of them. Thanks,

I don't have a NZXT case, but most cases I've had with a csrewless design have a springed clamp where the card goes.You push on the top part and it goes back lifting the clamp. Once the card is installed, pudh it back down and the spring pressure holds the card in place.

Thanks very much for the picture. That indeed does help. I had looked everywhere for a picture (well, almost everywhere) and could not find one. == In the small print above the picture it says
"unbelievably easy". They did not know who they were dealing with.

I glad it helped. Personally, I've used both and prefer screws.

After I put my question on here, I was trying to get the thing open and broke off a plastic piece. My screwless slot now has a screw in it.

Sorry I helped you break it, but it will be more secure with screws, in my opinion.

No, you did not have a thing to do with it getting broke. I am proud to say that I accomplished that all by myself. If I had waited for your answer, it would not have gotten broken. Thanks,

At least I didn't try to help you. But, I had a different case with a similar type clamp in the back and I broke mine on the first try.
