The bag that floated around the chassis offers this assortment of hardware. There are fan screws, 2.5" drive screws, an adapter plate, and a socket and extra standoffs for E-ATX installations. The lower row offers thumbscrews, PSU screws, fan plate screws, a handful of standard M3 screws, and a smaller group of 6/32 screws, and even a motherboard speaker.

To help secure fans at the top of the front of this chassis, once the ODD bays are removed, you will need the fan adapter plate to offer mounting holes there. We also were given ten tie straps to help maintain the wiring inside of this chassis.

We also wanted to get back to that hidden drive assembly. With it off the tray, and the plastic tray out of the bracket, we see the plate is marked A and B. A allows for a pair of 2.5" drives to go onto the plate, and the ones marked B will allow for a 3.5" drive at the same time. SSDs in RAID and a few terabytes of all-in-one location, hidden away.

Outside of the chassis, just under the plastic liner, you will find the manual and warranty information. The manual is very in depth and not only offers a parts checklist, and step-by-step guidance through any build, if you do happen to miss something looking around, this manual will show you every fine detail you missed.

If looking at the chart, or having us explain the fan and radiator options inside of this chassis didn't quite click, this one image will do all the explaining needed to grasp just what this chassis can house.

Just to show you we were not kidding around in the slightest, and due to the fact that with only one chassis it is hard to show this ability, here you can see that they show you how to remove the feet and the access panel to allow the Core X9 to mount on top of another Core X9 for the utmost in water cooling or air cooling capabilities.
