Unpacking the Danger Den Black-Series Tower 21 Case
Danger Den takes their time to get your case to you in tip top condition. The two clear sides are packed around the black pieces in the back. The front and rear panels are packaged together on the left. The top and bottom pieces and the rear I/O and expansion slot piece are what is left on the right.
Breaking it down a bit, I laid out all of the black acrylic components. There are both side structural members standing up. On the table are the PSU support, optional two or four hard drive pieces and the two small optical drive hangers.
Here I lined up the top, front, rear and bottom respectively.
I'm including the hardware at this point due to the fact that I will need quite a bit of it to continue on with the building of the chassis. Here is half! There are the fan mounting screws, optical drive screws and the feet and screws on the top row. The bottom consists of the case assembly nuts, the case power button and the universal screws in the last bag.
And here we have the second half of the hardware. The risers and motherboard screws, case wall screws and expansion slot screws make up the top. That leaves the I/O shield screws and wrench, other rear I/O screws and the USB / Audio panel screws to round it all out.
Because the case is acrylic and most of it in black, it is a fingerprint magnet and Danger Den has given you some gloves to keep scratches and fingerprints to a minimum. The instructions are very basic, but do show some terrific drawings to let you know where you went wrong, or to verify it is in fact correct. I would have liked to have seen them show where the PSU support piece goes, though; it took me just a bit to figure out exactly where it went. Then there is the wiring for the included switch.
