Mean:It 5PM ARC Blue Mid-Tower Chassis Review

TweakTown Rating: 93%Manufacturer: mean:IT





In a plain brown box, we see a shadow of the chassis used to take up most of the panel. The company name is in the upper-left corner, and in the shadow, we see 5PM, the name of the case, and that mean:IT considers it to be see-through excellence.





Under the words future, elegance, and performance, we are shown radiator compatibility first. Next, comes the fan support, then pump support, CPU cooler height, PSU length restrictions, and finish off with information about the fan controller.




What we are calling the back of the box has another shadow used, outlining the chassis from another angle. Under the 5PM name, this time we see mentions of three sides of the tempered glass, direct airflow, extensive water cooling support, auto or manual fan speed control, and that there is room for up to seven fans.




The last panel is used to display the rest of the chassis specifications. Here we find the chassis dimensions, weight, motherboard compatibility, GPU maximum length, storage options, expansion slots, and what comes in the I/O panel.




Inside of the box, we find that the chassis does not have any plastic sticking to the glass panels before it was inserted into the clear bag. Combined with the dense foam caps on the top and bottom of the chassis, we found the inner packaging to be sufficient. Our chassis is free from damage and has not one mark on it from its trip across the globe.
