Even though Fractal Design uses plain cardboard to ship the chassis inside of, they don't hold back with what is offered in black screen printing. On the front of the box, the full name of the company and chassis can be found at the top, with the middle of the panel used up with the huge rendering of the chassis. At the bottom, we see the logo and the web address, but we also see that this is the R6 in black with white accents, and that we should be careful with handling it.
The right side of the box delivers the chassis name at the top, a handle, and then the specifications which include options for both the chassis as well as the cooling system. Under the Fractal Design logo there is some legal information in fine print, and below that, we see that the chassis was designed in Sweden, but made in China.
Around to the back of the box, we see the company and chassis name once again. Along with an exploded diagram of the chassis in the lower-left corner, there are eleven features shown in the diagram, which are explained above and to the right of it.
The second skinny panel shows us that this is the Tempered Glass Edition, with a rendering below it of the chassis from the left side of it, with an exposed view of the interior. What is left is a company usage barcode, with the model and serial number on it, as well as the EAN, UPC, and LAN codes.
While the cardboard used is on the thick side, Fractal Design took no chances of ensuring the Define R6 gets to you without a scratch. There is plastic on both sides of the tempered glass, and a bag which envelops the entire chassis to protect all of the finishes. Not only do they use thick Styrofoam caps on the top and bottom of the case, but they also use dense foam to cover the tempered glass. Like ours, and we could tell its trip to us was not gentle, our Define R6 still got here without a nick or a scratch.
