In the box of hardware, we found these six bags of screws. Across the top, we find a bag full of M3 screws for 2.5" drive mounting, there are two thumbscrews to use with the EATX plate, and other thumb screws to lock on the HDD trays. The bottom row of bags delivers 6-32 motherboard screws, PSU screws, and some flat head HDD style screws we found no use for.

BitFenix is also sure to include six zip-ties to help with the wires, even though the trio of straps do a good job with the majority of the wires behind the motherboard tray. They also include another three standoffs, which are in case you lose some, as there are nine found in the motherboard tray already.

The quick installation guide for the Shogun explains sizes and quantity of the hardware you should have with your case. After that concludes, there are many pages with renderings and text, guiding you through a basic installation. There are mentions there as to cooling and water cooling support, allowing this manual to cover the novice and experienced builders needs.

Since this is nearly impossible to get a clear view of when it is still inside of the case, after pulling all of the drive bays and GPU supports, we also removed this plate from the floor of the Shogun. This has holes in it for drive support, but it can also be used to attach pumps and reservoirs to it as well.

Found outside of the case, stuffed into the top Styrofoam cap, BitFenix sends this EATX extension panel. This will fill the gap found behind the HDD bays and GPU supports. It not only gives new locations to run wiring through, but it also adds another six tie points for wires.
