Setting up the case:​
1. Take off all the protective acrylic packaging paper off of the acrylic pieces of the case (Use a knife to pick at a corner and pull off the plastic)
2. First take bottom piece, the one with the box in the center and the long side with the shorter distance of the side to the box facing you
3. Take out the 4 screws, 4 plastic washers and 4 nuts from the bag
4. Take the 4 screws and put them into the bottom plastics piece from underneath with the long side with the shorter distance of the side to the box facing you and place on flat surface
5. Take the 4 plastic spacers and put them on the screws
6. Take the raspberry pi and put it on the screws by ligning it up
7. Take the 4 nuts and put them on the screws
8. Take out the 4 nuts and 4 screws out of the bag
9. Take the top piece of the case and lay it flat with the gpio cut facing away from you and the big lift tabs to your left
10. Lift up the piece and stick in the 4 screws underneath the piece and through the holes
11. Take the fan and look around its sides to find two arrows
12. Orient the fan so the arrow is pointing up and where the cable exits the fan should be away from you
13. Take the fan and place it on the 4 screws
14. Take the 4 nuts and screw the fan down
15. Use a philips screw driver and a wrench or pliers
16. Take the two long side pieces for the case and put them on 
17. 5v fan so plug the red side into pin 4 and black side into pin 6
18. But sadly the case does not fit with the connector how it is so we are going to shave off the side clip with a razor or knife then plug it in
19. Take the cable and sort off wrap it around the fan, and place the top piece in the two holes of the side pieces
20. Take the piece with two holes in it and align it over the front ethernet and usb ports, when you put on the piece first hook it over the top hooks and then the bottom clips
21. Then take the final piece and put it over the back, by hooking it on the top and cliping it in
22. Now the case is complete
 
Setting it up for use:
1. Plug in the ethernet cable into your network and into the raspberry pi
2. Plug in micro usb side into the raspberry pi but not into the wall socket yet
