The iCute 314 is a very easy case to open.  
First, I assume that you are trying to get into the side panel of the case.  Lay down some protective paper or bubblewrap (so you don't mess up such a nice case!).
Then lay the case over on its side, with the clear side facing up. On the underside, you will see 4 chromed thumbscrews.  Unscrew these, making sure not to lose them. Taking the side cover off is somewhat different from a lot of cases in that you slide it towards the *FRONT* of the case instead of backwards.
Closing up the case is just as simple as reversing the above steps. IMPORTANT NOTE:  For all repairs/mods, you should have the power disconnected before messing around with anything inside the case.
Note 2:  If you don't know what you are doing, don't mess around inside the case!  I have had more repairs not from computer part failure, but from people messing around inside the 'puter without knowing what they were doing.
I hope all of this helps.  You do have a nice case for your system!

I don't know how to open the case? It has a side panel clear blue led lights

Hi there,

you will need a rubber replacement for your R1 button, if you or a friend have a defective joystick consider that a replacement. if you can't find a defective joystick you can buy a ps2 rubber kit online. below are reference pics.


1. Remove 5 screws with a philip screw at the back of the joystick.
2. Split the two covers with caution.
3. Carefully remove the rubber beneath the R1 button and replace it with a new one.
4. Put together the front and back part of the joystick.
5. Test the replaced part and screw if you're satisfied.

Hopefully this information helps.

thank you for using Fixya..

How to set up my 850w icute modular vga psu,because it sounds loud and there is alot of heat

As long as you have replaced all connections that were there previously (make sure you have connected the main power supply, and the supplementary one on the motherboard. Make sure your hard drive(s)/CD drive(s) are connected. And if your graphics card requires a pci-e connecter, do that as well.) That is all the setup that is needed. As the power supplies go up in power, there will inevidably be more noise/heat. But it shouldnt be obnoxiously loud or hot. If the temp of the air blowing from the back of the psu is HOT thats a bad sign, especially if this is a new unit. Make sure that your intake fan is facing the open side in your case and not blocked at the top/bottom of the case. If it is terribly loud and/or hot, i would send it back for a replacement.

Pc tower motherboard upgrade

you can put in any new micro-atx motherboard no problem. I can be 100% sure if the case is Atx full size- best way to check is to see how many pci expansion slots are available at the back of the case. Any Atx case can hold micro-atx mobo's but a micro atx case wont hold atx mobo.

Opening tower

Yes, perhaps a picture of the case from different angles.

usually it is wo screws on the back running up the side panel along the rim, It could have a latch that is pulled or pushed.

Both ways the metal panel usually slides toward s the back of the case and unhooks.

Icute to motherboard wiring

Hi, on the edge of your mother board closest to the front of the computer, you will find a double row of pins. Use a torch and if needed a magnifying glass and study these, you will find they are labeled the same as your cables from the case.
In some cases the plugs are set as a 3 space plug, if you find one of these that wont fit. just split it. If you plug the LED wire back to front, don't panic it won't hurt they just wont work. The power and reset are not pole sensetive.
Goodluck mistyman
