Part of what we find in the box tucked into the foam is what we have here. At the top, we find a bag of HDD screws to work with the trays, and next to that, we find another bag for 2.5" drive mounting and reservoir bracket screws. At the bottom, we see a bag of motherboard screws, and next to that, we see the standoffs and a socket to drive them in all the way.

Also inside of that box we are given six wire tie straps to help out to maintain the wiring behind the motherboard tray. We also see the bag of PSU screws, and at the bottom of two brackets that screw into the right side of the motherboard tray to hold a reservoir.

Along with all Fractal Design cases, we get a red insert that says not to return this product to the store. If you have any issues with your chassis, you should go directly to the manufacturer, not the point of sale. Also included is a thick, well written and illustrated manual to guide you and advise you through the build process.

It is much easier to see how the reservoir brackets are used and where they connect to the chassis in this image, so rather than going on and on with the explanation of how it works, we used this image to do the talking for us.

While we did go over the fan options, this image puts all of the questions to rest. This image is also for the non-windowed version of the chassis, so ours does not offer the side panel location shown in this image, but as for the rest of the fans, all of what is shown otherwise pertains to the windowed version as well.

In case you were not exactly clear on the water cooling options afforded in this design, this single image makes it very clear. They even go as far as to show that the top can only house 55mm of radiator and fans, where in the rest of the chassis, thickness is of no concern.
