The Packaging & Hardware

Custom cut cardboard packaging is what surrounds my Q20 chassis. Using the FedEx sticker as a size reference, you can see there is going to be a lot of assembly required to get this chassis to the dimensions listed in the specifications.

Once all of the tape was cut, opening the box I was first greeted with a packing slip, the front I/O panel and the bag containing the feet for this chassis all packed on top of pink packing peanuts.

Removing about half of the peanuts, the acrylic pieces are now visible. All of the components are shipped with dense foam corners applied to the chassis to keep the acrylic in the center of the box.

The individual acrylic components are still covered with the paper covering the full sheets that was applied to them prior to Danger Den cutting them. The pieces are then wrapped in plastic wrap, then all of them are wrapped together giving you this package of cut pieces you see here.

Packed on top of the acrylic for transit, you find the power button, the feet, the instruction manual and on the right is the wiring for the large power button.

Since this is a do-it-yourself chassis, the amount of hardware is elevated. These bags contain the rear I/O screws, the motherboard risers and screws, SSD mounting screws, a bag of nuts and the case wall screws. The bottom row has HDD screws, optical drive screws, PCI screws, PSU and misc. screws, fan screws and screws for both the front and rear grills.

Last thing to be found in my box is the optional front I/O add-on panel which contains the hardware for mounting and connections for headphones, a microphone and two USB 2.0 ports.
