From the information supplied on the manufacturers website, the Anubis has some impressive specs. It will accept most any motherboard/power supply combination one could throw at it and its welded 6063-T5 aluminum alloy construction promises a very strong chassis, if not an extremely light weight one. Drive space is plentiful and the dimensions are about what one would expect from a mid-tower ATX case. These features and specs look promising so let's proceed to the next section and see what HIPER offers a consumer in exchange for their hard-earned money.
The carton arrived at the lab in what can only be described as “distressed” condition, but…
…thanks to top-shelf packaging, the Anubis arrived in pristine condition. Soft, dense foam blocks surround the plastic wrapped case and a cutout on the top block holds the “travel bag” that HIPER uses to stow all the accessories.
I'm impressed that HIPER has sorted all the hardware for you, especially since there are two sets of thumbscrews that are incompatible. A brief, but adequate instruction sheet is also included in the bag along with a…
…dust brush and a nicely designed keyring. The heavy medallion has the profile of Anubis and some hieroglyphs on this side, and the serial number of the case on the obverse. The reason for the included dust brush will become clear a bit later and, while the keyring doesn't support maintenance chores or promote system cooling, it's a nice touch.
