You know something is expensive when it comes in a wooden crate. The crate is reusable since it is held together with Phillips head screws; you do not need a wedge to pry it open. The PC is secured in the center of the box through two large foam pieces.

Our package included a t-shirt, two SATA cables, a USB stick with the recovery image, WIFI antenna, GPU power connector, power cable, magnetic rubber feet, USB 3.0 to 2.0 internal header converter, and the manuals and paper documentation regarding each piece of the PC.

The windowed door of the PC has multiple hexagonal vent holes over the intake fan of the GPU and the CPU cooler. The window also perfectly displays the GPU. The rear panel has some more air vent holes.
