On plain cardboard, Fractal Design uses black screen printing to display the company and chassis name at the top, with a large image of the Node 202 below them. There is also a sticker on this version, denoting the inclusion of the Integra 450W SFX PSU. We also find a pair of smaller renderings showing off the orientation options, and along the bottom is the site address to obtain more information.

This much thinner panel offers the chassis model number along with the PSU model number, and both boxes are checked, telling us they are inside this box. The rest of the panel is used for stickers and compliances.

The back delivers the naming at the top again, but the rendering, this time, is an exploded diagram of the Node 202. Each component receives a number, and there is test off to the left addressing what each of these parts offers.

The last of the exterior panels offers a very condensed specifications chart near the top. Below the chart we see two more renderings, which show off the chassis side panels, the left one on top, and the right side panel below that.

The chassis is wrapped in a plastic liner to protect the paint finish, and Fractal Design also places the paperwork in this bag, as they will not cause any damage to the chassis. The front and back of the Node 202 is covered with thick Styrofoam caps and secures this weighty chassis inside of the box. This Node 202, even with the additional weight of the SFX PSU, still showed up in perfect condition.
