AVADirect Custom Small Business Server System - The Packaging

AVADirect is a custom builder best known for their gaming systems, but their server and high performance PCs make up the majority of their builds. Today we take custom to a whole new level.

The Packaging

AVA used a double box method and the outside package was as large as what we would see if receiving a full size tower computer.

After digging through the layers of foam, bubble wrap and peanuts, we ended up with a motherboard box filled with accessories and the standard Chenbro box used to ship the chassis to manufacturers.

Inside the Chenbro package was our server with an extra layer of protection.

 

AVADirect does a very good job of protecting their products during shipping. We found that the server is at least ten inches away from the outside of the package in all directions.

Inside the motherboard package we found several accessories. Included were the drive discs for the motherboard and Highpoint RocketRAID controller, a set of keys for locking the front of the server, a DVI to VGA Adapter (that you will need), the antenna for WiFi connectivity, several manuals and finally the external power supply that is used to provide power to the server.

 

With the power supply on the outside of the server, users will not need to worry about the additional heat generated by the PSU. We actually really liked this feature.
