The OrigenAE X11 appears to be nearly identical in construction to the Zalman HD160. All the information provided on the HD160 page should be applicable to the X11 as well (including setting up the remote and VFD).

  • Optional mce compatible VFD/IR module

  • 2 x 80mm exhaust fan
  • 1 x 80mm intake fan

  • matched cd/dvd drive bezel
  • blue illuminated power button
  • vibration isolation grommets

Build/Assembly notes

Unfortunately, I didn't do a good job of taking a bunch of pictures while I was assembling the case. However, there are a few things to note when working with it that may help make your life a bit easier:

  • You will need to remove both drive cages in order to be able to comfortably hook up the front panel and connectors
  • I'd highly recommend putting the power supply in very last
  • Be sure to verify the orientation of the pegs in the 3.5" cage before you start putting your hard drives in
  • Put some spacers between the base of the 5.25" cage and the screw posts, otherwise your dvd/cd drive tray might get caught on the edge of the outer case (if you don't put the custom bezel on the drive, that is)
