I bought an open boxed x570 e from newegg. It was missing the cd, rgb cables and who knows what else. Im building for the first time next month. I will buy some m.2 screws myself but what exactly do i need to put this mobo on to my mid tower case? Does the case come with screws for the mobo? Im missing the wifi antenna as well but I usuall hardwire the net connection. Please tell me what exactly I need, if I do need more. Thanks.

I'll be honest, even for an open box that's too much stuff missing. I'd request a return.

If not, then you don't need the CD. There's nothing on there worth having anyhow. The drivers are likely outdated already and the bundled software utilities that come on there should be strictly avoided as they tend to cause more problems than they solve.

It already has a Q-code display, so you don't need a motherboard beep code speaker. The extension cables you don't need unless you are planning to connect addressable RGB lighting strips.

Simply download and install all of the following drivers AFTER you install Windows:
