All of the hardware comes individually packed, just to make life a bit easier There are HDD screws if the pins in the trays are not secure enough for you, eight fan screws, and 6/32 screws for the motherboard and PSU mounting At the bottom, we see the extra standoff, eight long fan screws, rubber grommets to use with the HDD screws, and a set of eight M3 screws for mounting 25" drives

Behind the steel wire cover in the chassis is a set of three Velcro straps to help with wire management there, but Corsair also provides another pair to help bundle wires at the PSU, or to keep the GPU power leads tidy on the inside of the case For spots where wires need to be secured to the motherboard tray, we also received six zip-ties for such instances

Outside of the chassis, you will find the manual floating around inside of the box The manual shows how to open the chassis, where to install the components, and a few additional things, but it is missing a parts list The smaller insert was found inside of the manual and covers all things that Corsair will guarantee for the period of two-years with all Obsidian cases
