The box for this case is enormous! The stairs leading into my office area are very slim, and I could just barely get it up there. It’s very well-decorated, displaying the top’s port panel and fan controller prominently. The rear of the case highlights the color changing abilities, the airflow, and more.
Included are the case, some keys, manuals, and the essential screws.
