Packaging and System

The box big enough, and the packaging is done well so that the PC isn't damaged in transit.

Accessories include an AC power cord, mouse, keyboard, and manuals.

The front of the unit consists of a slanted black aluminum mesh vent, some carbon fiber lined edges, and rubberized top. The rear of the unit is where all the magic happens. The GTX 1070 8GB outputs DVI, HDMI, and three DisplayPort outputs. The motherboard's IO panel offers four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, Gbit LAN, VGA, DVI, HDMI, PS/2 keyboard/mouse, and 7.1 audio output with S/PDIF out. Don't use the graphics connectors attached to the motherboard, instead use the ones at the top of the rear of the case as those are connected to the GTX 1070 8GB. Your AC power plug is at the rear of the PC as well. The back of the unit is also mostly a large vent, the one on the left will output the heat from the CPU, above that is the GPU's output, and on the right is the PSU output.

Got angles? The Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 definitely does. Both the left and right side panels have large vents and a unique design.

At the top of the unit we have angled slits with red painted aluminum vents, and a large handle so you can carry around the PC to LAN parties. The bottom of the unit features four large pyramid-shaped rubber feet and some more vents.

On top of the PC, we get a headphone jack, a microphone jack, and two USB 3.0 ports. The USB 3.0 port with a battery symbol can be used for quick charging. The power button also resides at the top of the case.
