The TS03 supports slim optical drive to reduce the depth required in the 5.25” optical drive bay. It can increase the space for CPU cooler in the GD05. The limitations of installing NT06-E into the GD05 are as follow:

  1. Horizontal orientation of CPU cooler on the motherboard.

    The distance from CPU to motherboard edge.

  2. Vertical orientation of CPU cooler on the motherboard.

The distance from CPU to motherboard edge.

The above limitations apply only if graphics card is installed in the first expansion slot and with rear 80mm fans installed.
If fans are removed, y distance decreases by 25mm
If graphics card is installed in the second expansion slot, the x distance increases by 20mm

Installation guide

  1. Install the NT06-E on the motherboard.

  2. Insert a slim optical drive into the TS03.

  3. Install the motherboard into the chassis.

  4. Install and secure the TS03 in the 5.25” drive bay.

  5. Connect the wires and cables to the TS03.

  6. Install a 120mm fan over the NT06-E as needed.

1. Loosen three screws located on the back of GD05 and detach top-cover gently.

2. Loosen four screws located on hard drive bracket and detach it gently.

3. Loosen two screws near front I/O module and detach it gently.

4. Install USB 3.0 front I/O module (part number: G11303260) and secure with screws.

5. Assemble parts back in reverse order carefully. Your case is now USB3 ready.
