Raidmax offers its customers fan screws to use with a pair of fans, there is an extra standoff, and screws to be used for the ODD bay and the PSU. The M3 screws in front of them are intended for the motherboard mounting, as well as any 2.5" drive mounting. The sad thing is, they do not provide enough to fill all of the holes.

With the Alpha comes this handy little remote controller. This allows you to turn the LED lights on and off, cycle through modes, switch colors, change the speed and intensity of them, and even has seven preset colors you can pick with a single press. The back of this remote has a large magnet on it, which means it can be stuck to any metal part of the chassis when not in use.

The user manual that ships with the Alpha are basic. It starts with exploded diagrams of the chassis denoting each of the components and moves right into the component installation. There is no mention of what bits you should have or what they are for; it is left to you to sort all of that out. The manual is decent enough to get an experienced builder through the process, but if you have never touched a chassis before, this manual will not answer all of the questions that may come up.
