Accessories and Documentation

These are some of the components I had to remove to get a better look inside of the chassis and make the build go much smoother. On the left is the slim optical bay for an ODD with the three 2.5" drive positions in the rack under it. On the right is two thirds of the HDD bays , and I was just adding it to the image to show that even on the small components, Steiger Dynamics does not cheap out on them.

As for some of the actual hardware that comes with the LEET chassis, some of it is in this image. At the top are some silicone radiator fan gaskets to keep things silent, for both a dual and single 120mm radiator. At the bottom there is a USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter along with a 24-pin adapter that also carries a 3-pin wire to power the touchscreen on the front.

Inside of these two bags you get all of the wire management clips and screws, washers, o-rings, nuts, bolts, everything you could ever need to complete the LEET chassis and fill every slot offered inside of the chassis.

There is also a remote control along with a pair of AA batteries. This remote is capable of turning on and off the system; it also offers keyboard and mouse functionality, app launcher and task switcher buttons, along with a full assortment of media keys to make WMP run without a hitch.

I was also sent one chrome fan grill to be installed in that large hole for a 120mm fan in the rear of the chassis.

Inside of the binder that we saw in the packaging, there is a leaf of the book to hold the software and manual. The software is to get the screen up and running, along with a couple of other cool things, and there is a digital version of the instructions you can move to this PC, so you don't always have to go and hunt down this folder.

Inside of the manual, this is the type of images and instructions that you are given. Of course there is a parts guide, wiring diagrams, installation guide, and just about any question you need will be answered.

The last bits of the kit that I received included these three components from Swiftech built specifically for Steiger Dynamics. There is an Apogee Drive II in the black box, there is an MCR120-QP Rev2 radiator in the white box, and the plain box contains an MCR220-QP Rev2 with reservoir and side fill port.
