Packaging

Sticking to the basics, Fractal Design packs the Define R5 in plain cardboard with black screen printing for the naming across the top, a rendering of the chassis in the center, and the company logo and web address at the bottom.

Here we find the chassis naming at the top once again, and near the middle, we see the FD-CA-DEF-R5-BK model number is checked off, denoting we have the black model, and not white or titanium. Just below this, we find a rendering of the internal layout as it is shipped.

Around back, we find nine features listed, including the chassis' silent operation, H2O support, ModuVent system, GP14 fans, dust filters, HDD cage modularity, hidden drive bays, front panel, and the quick release panel. The rendering at the bottom shows the chassis, notes where things are located, and how to remove or access them.

The last panel of the package offers both of the charts we discussed, and makes customers fully aware of the cooling and water cooling options by separating those specifications from the rest of the chassis specifications.

There is nothing super special about the inner packaging, yet the use of a thin inner liner, and Styrofoam end caps was more than enough to take the hits the box shows in the images. The Define R5 inside arrived damage-free, and in great shape.
