Updated: Apr 26

This is a selection of recommended accessories and general information concerning The First, based on previous orders placed by our clients. This should help you to choose the accessories you might need with your build.


Information concerning The First - Apwal & The First:


If your cables are length enough, no need to buy additional extending cables. Simply remove the back panel part at the back of the case, and connect your cables through the empty slot to your motherboard (USB, RJ 45) and graphic card (HDMI, Display Port).


Recommended accessories for The First:



Riser is needed for specific configurations. Please have a look at our compatible list. If you can't find your reference, feel free to contact the team.


* Internal antenna can reduce the WiFi connection speed. Some motherboards are delivered with an extend cable to connect the antenna outside of the case.


** A 140mm fan is recommended if you plan to use a graphic card range higher than RTX 2060 / GTX 1660Ti or if you live in a country where temperatures can exceed 25°C into your house. Whatever, a fan is always a good option as you can set it up to only work when a certain temperature is reached. For the rest of the time, you will stay fanless. Note that the slot fan is only accessible when combined with a SFX power supply.
