EVGA DG-87 Full-Tower Gaming Chassis Review

TweakTown Rating: 99%Manufacturer: EVGA





The exterior packaging is attractive, shiny, but at the same time very simple. On this side of the box, we find the EVGA name at the top, while the rest of the panel is taken up with a life-sized image of the left side of the DG-87 found inside of it.





Again, the EVGA name tops this panel as well and is followed by iconography. In the middle, we find five features listed, covering the K-Boost, optimal airflow path, cable management, the inclusion of USB3.1 Type-C, and the built-in fan controller.




On the back of the box, we see yet another life-sized image of the chassis. Rather than repeating the left side of the DG-87, this time, we see the right side of it on this panel.




The last of the exterior panels mimics its opposing side of the box at the top. However, when we move down the panel, things have been changed from its features to this specifications chart which covers only the DG-86 and the DG-87 which is inside of this box.




With such a large chassis and the weight associated with this case, the standard inner packaging would not have worked well at all. Since this chassis is heavy enough to destroy Styrofoam in transit, the chassis is protected with large, thick, high-density foam end caps. Under that, we find a cloth bag to protect the paint finishes, and it could also be used as a cover for dust prevention or traveling. Under the liner, there are layers of plastic found on the window and the mirrored side panel section, and even bits of tape to hold doors closed. This allows this enormous chassis to arrive at your door in perfect condition, as ours did.
