I had to laugh a little bit when I opened the hardware box. While I do appreciate that the bag isn't left recklessly floating around in the chassis, these must be boxes they had on hand. For some reason this box implied it would have more than just this small bag of screws and other hardware.

Packed into that bag is a full assortment of the large hard drive screws that work specifically with the wings and grommets found there. There is also the motherboard and PSU mounting screws and the smaller screws for 2.5" drive installation or 5.25" devices. You also receive a motherboard speaker, a padlock loop and screw, eight rubber washers and three wire ties.

This multi-lingual manual takes you from the parts list and basic disassembly of the 787 on to the more intricate use of the hard drive system employed here, a couple of which I want to point out in the following images.

The first of which is the installation and use of the PSU support strap. The use of nylon as the strap material and Velcro to fasten it, the strap is very easy to feed through the chassis and use.

The second part I found very helpful was this brief but very informative page pertaining to the hard drive wings. It shows what holes are used for 2.5" drives and which holes allow 3.5" drives. If the grommets used with 3.5" drives are in the wrong location, they are easily removed and relocated to your specific needs.

Just to show how they go on, I added a 3.5" drive for another rig, but the 2.5" drive will remain inside as it is the boot drive for the 990FX UD7 setup. Keep in mind, 3.5" drives use the grommets and the odd screws, any 2.5" drives mount directly to the steel wings.
