A bag of screws, a security bracket and four cable ties, what more could a man want? Maybe a single sheet of instructions with print and diagrams so small we couldn't read them even if we gave up and traded in our man cards. On a more serious note, Silverstone do publish an online manual, and all the bolts and screws you need are included, it's just there's not a lot of them.
Even with our beefy CoolerMaster V1000 PSU in there there's still plenty of room to move the cables rearwards through either of the large PSU cut outs. Although it's unlikely you're going to want to place a massive PSU in here, it's nice to know there's a total of 225mm of room to play with. The Motherboard drops in easily enough but is perhaps a bit tight along the top edge, and as you can see the space afforded by the gap in the drive cages lines up nicely with the PCI slots on the motherboard enabling long GPUs to be mounted.
As it's tight up top we found it advisable to bring the 8pin CPU cable through before the motherboard was placed. We're not saying it can't be done otherwise, just that this is a lot easier this way. Turning the case around we can also see that it's been a relatively easy job to obtain a decent loom of the cables on this minimal build
Things are also quite tidy around the front, even if there aren't any rubber grommets to speak of. If you're planning on inserting a good old fashioned tower air cooler, anything up to 161mm will fit fine, which means you should be able to find something of a decent size with nice low fan speeds to keep the noise down.
