The Cooler Master Sileo 500 came packaged in a typical Cooler Master case box, following the purple/white color scheme. The product name and a picture of the case are labeled on one side while the other side goes into a little bit more detail about the features of the case.
One of the smaller sides goes into the specifications of the case. The case is protected inside the packaging by two hard pieces of Styrofoam and a plastic bag to protect it from any dust gathering on it.
