Inside the Box 

I opened the box to find everything nicely protected against damage.  There was plenty of foam and it was basically a box inside a box.



Every panel was individually wrapped to keep it safe from scratches that can really ruin a nice clear case.  You can tell a lot of care and thought was put into the packaging of this case.  Nothing was going to be damaged here.



I found all of the hardware, fans, fan grills and everything needed to assemble this case.  The only thing you will need is a couple of screw drivers and a nut driver for the stand offs.  All of the hardware was nicely labeled with the part numbers and the intended use.



There is also a several page manual to follow along with.  I recommend reading through this before getting started.  This will help prevent any surprises later.



You will need a large area free of clutter to assemble your case; I chose the dining room table (a big thanks to my wife for putting up with me invading the kitchen during this process).

I put a soft throw on my dining room table to make sure none of the panels got scratched. After making sure I read through the manual to get a feel for what was in store, I laid out all of the parts and looked at all the hardware bags to get familiar with what was there.

Again, everything is clearly labeled.  This will assure you are using the right hardware for each step. The manual calls out the parts both by their number on the bag and by name.
