Hardware & Documentation
The hardware we found in the chassis offers up four hex-head screws, which are for the power supply, and to the right are eight 6/32 screws for HDD mounting. At the bottom is a handful of pan-head M3 screws for the mounting of 2.5" drives and the motherboard, and three standoffs; two extra, and one to be installed in the chassis, which is currently missing.
For those without a lot of free fan headers on the motherboard, Antec offers a 4-pin Molex which converts to three 3-pin fan connections. We made mention that six of the expansion slots are knock-outs, and Antec delivers three replaceable slot covers to fill voids if parts should change, or you knock out the wrong cover.
When we opened the box, this dust filter was stuck to the PSU cover, between it and the tempered glass. We can only assume this is intended to go into the front of the chassis, but unless it was hung on the inside, we see no way on how it could make it past the fans in transit. With no information on it, we assume Antec wants you to put this between the bezel and the front intake fans, optionally, as it will reduce the visual effect.
The manual is basic in its contents, but there is enough there to get you through the build process. Additionally, we are also offered a wiring diagram for the fans and the connections for RGB. The basic idea here is to run the fans in series, and always be sure to align the arrows on the connections.
