Packaging

Helping to keep the cost to the customer down, Galaxis again delivers the chassis in a basic brown cardboard box. They do add black and blue screenings to give you a colourful presentation. The panel keeps things simple and offers the naming along with an outlined drawing of the Atlus chassis. While the box does specify certain processor types, it will handle those as well as any of the previous sockets.

The side continues the black and blue waves at the bottom under a list of four features. Socket types, the 180mm fan, room for up to four 120mm fans, and the fact that it will keep a stock system at less than 39 degrees under loaded conditions, round out the list.

Reusing the same screens saves money. Following that concept, the rear of the packaging mimics the front.

The last external panel hosts the packaging information above two model numbers. These model numbers denote the red fan or blue fan edition of the chassis. As you can see, the BL or blue edition is the one we received to show you.

Using the tried and true methods of packaging, Galaxis keeps it simple and surrounds the Atlus in a plastic liner with Styrofoam end caps to keep the chassis safe in transit.

This little box contains all the hardware for the Atlus and you will find it snugly tucked away in the foam covering the top of the chassis. I just happened to see it as I removed the foam. There is little additional weight in the included components inside the box, so it could easily be overlooked.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
