Packaging and System
The box is very simple and just features a picture of the unit. Packaging is very well done, and the system will be well protected during shipment.
The accessory package includes an AC/DC PSU, AC power cable, driver DVD, WIFI antenna system, two SATA data/power combo attachments, rubber legs, screws, and easy installation manual. The PSU outputs 19v at 14.21a for a total of 270W and is made by FSP Group.
The front of the unit has a brushed aluminum facing, which is quite nice. You also get a headphone jack, microphone jack, power button, USB 3.0 port, USB 3.0 type-C port, and LED indicators.
The rear of the unit features a DC power input jack, 1Gbit LAN port, HDMI port (from iGPU), four USB 3.0 ports, HDMI (from dGPU), DisplayPort (from dGPU), and mini-DP (from dGPU). You should plug into the dGPU ports.
The top of the unit features a large vent surface. The bottom features areas for rubber leg standoffs as does the back of the unit so you can use it upright or on its side.
The left side of the unit (or top if you put it on its side) features a large vent surface and two USB 2.0 ports.
The first step to opening the unit is to unscrew two screws and slide the cover off. To remove the motherboard tray from the case you must unscrew two screws located at the interior of the case; you should look to the instruction manual for an illustration.
You will need to unplug the front panel cable and the USB cable from the motherboard to slide it out. Once you slide it out, you can flip it over to find the M.2 slots for WIFI and storage drives.
