Packaging is kept simple with the release of the Core V71. Using plain brown cardboard and black screen printing not only saves money, but on this panel, they get the point across for the general shape and look of the chassis along with the naming off to its right.
As we spin the box to the left, the next panel offers a very short list of features that gets repeated in twelve total languages. Thermaltake covers the front I/O connectivity, the trio of 200mm fans, the 8+2 drive system, as well as support for water cooling and cable management.
The back of the packaging is a direct copy of the front panel we just saw and is a sure way to help keep the money going into chassis development rather than on a fancy box that goes in the bin shortly after it arrives.
As we continue around the packaging, we get to our last panel. Thermaltake has used this panel to offer a specifications chart much like the one we just discussed, and it is nice to see it offers everything at a glance so customers don't have to visit a website in the store to see what they are getting.
Inside of the cardboard, there are two very thick Styrofoam end caps used to center the chassis in the box, and they take any hard hits to protect the chassis inside of them. They have also used a plastic bag to surround the chassis and clingy plastic on both sides of the window to keep minor scrapes and scratches at bay. Even with some scuffs and punctures on the box, the Core V71 inside of it arrived in impeccable condition.
