The two opposing large sides of the box are the same, so we will show it once. First thing, let's handle a little housekeeping, the tape strips are due to hard cardboard stabilizing ribs which were attached to the edges of the box to ensure the overseas travel is handled well. The box is brown with black print showing the Equilence, along with its name and some features.

First up is ultra-silence, which coincides with the sound deadening marketing claim we observed earlier. LED-backlit I/O panel is something I have seen on a few cases previously and its neat but would be more helpful if it can be turned off as it can be quite bright 4mm panoramic tempered glass, well its tempered glass, by definition panoramic means 'a wide/sweeping view around the observer or including all aspects of a wide-ranging subject'.

At best, the usage of the term panoramic is verbose and merely stating that you have a tempered glass panel is satisfactory, but marketing is marketing. Triple Radiator support and the way they list it is a bit weird as it lists three sizes under the icon, which in itself is awkward since the dimensions vary for radiator fitment as listed before. Lastly, we have the PSU tunnel design, which is fancy marketing speak for 'we have a PSU shroud too.'

The first thin side of the box is where all of the shipping labels on the box come into play along with some model identifier. Now we see some of the MPN confusion we had previously as the chassis is correctly listed in two places as the ECA3511A-BB. Which is what we have while a sticker to the right of that containing the serial number and on the chassis as well states ECA3510, which means every Equilence must be an ECA3510 with the 3511 model merely getting two more fans in the front vs. the single exhaust of the 3510.

Here on the thin opposing side of the box, we find a spec sheet which mirrors the one we had shown earlier from the Enermax webpage for the Equilence. You will notice that the spec sheet does not show preinstalled fans which means this box is used for all Equilence models and therefore if shopping at a retail shop, be sure to know which part number you are getting.

The case once removed is wrapped in a plastic bag, and enveloped on top and bottom with squishy polystyrene style end caps. These cushion the case from shipping damage, and I prefer this material as it tends to be much better at absorbing rough travel where the hard Styrofoam can crumble if it takes impact. The front glass panel has a brown paper over the panel protecting the glass from scratches or abrasions. The large main panel tempered glass comes with plastic film on the interior and exterior to help with damage or scratches to the glass as well.
