PRODUCT COMPOSITION AND PICTORIAL
The box was in great shape when I received it, with only a little ding at the bottom and a small rip in the back. This is fairly impressive considering it came all the way from Seoul, Korea on a less-than-priority shipment.
The case itself was in perfect condition because it was held securely in place and protected by thick Styrofoam. The packaging was no different than any of the other company's and it got the case to me without a scratch which is all that matters.
The case comes with two fans (already installed); the built in LED temperature display, and a small box with screws/thumbscrews and everything else you need to fasten your hardware into the case.
The window is tinted. It allows a view of everything inside the case and gives the LED fan that is included a chance to show off its wicked colors. With the orange version of the case you will get an orange side window. With the blue version, you will get a blue window.
The two fans that were included with the case are great. One of them is black (rear Exhaust) and extremely silent while the other is a clear side intake 80mm multi-colored LED version. They push a lot of air through the case and with both of them on full power, the inside of the case stays at a steady 30 degrees.
