-A reset switch
-9 screws (motherboard mounting)

-16 fan screws for 1CM or 2CM, 40MM Fan(s) (120mm screws ship with your fan)
-2 bay cover screws/nuts for cover fastening (single bay not included)
The instructions are brief, easy to ready and incredibly useful. When you're putting an acrylic case together, especially one like this, it is important to read the instructions in order to save yourself some time and aggravation. You have to put the pieces into the case in a specific order so that they all slide in easily. Otherwise, you will spend all of your time either trying to cram something in, or having to remove several components that are blocking the way.
For this reason, it is very important to also have all of the components that you want to add to the case ready. Of course you can always change them later if you'd like, but I'm saying for convenience's sake, it is so much easier not to have to remove that power supply every time you want to change a 5.25" device.
As shown in the above photo, the Secret Agent Briefcase comes with two 5.25" bay covers. If you'd rather have one large bay cover that covers that entire section...… ClearPC thought of this too. You can order one of these from the ClearPC website. They're inexpensive and will provide a nicer finish if you don't intend on using either bay.
And there she is. Oh, what a beauty. Let's not waste any time.
