Just make sure you've got a screwdriver, and whatever screws or standoffs you might need. If you intend to do some cable management as well, then some zip-ties would come in handy.

needlenose pliers, they help greatly for hooking up those front panel connectors, especially if you have space restrictions. Also useful for lian-li standoffs.

tiny flashlight, so you can keep it in your mouth, leaving both hands free.

flush cutters for zip-ties...no protruding strap means less chance of getting cut on them.

old credit card for applying heatsink compound. optionally mod a plastic playing card into a jig for applying consistant amounts of compound.
