We received this system just like you would if you ordered it from iBUYPOWER yourself. The system comes in a nice large box. When you open it up there is a large notice that tells you who to contact if you have any issues with the system.
Opening the box up inside we find our case box that has the system in it and a quit setup guide.
To give you a good idea of how the system comes, what all it comes with and an overview of the system itself check out our unboxing and overview video below.
