The main side of the box shows the majority of the box covered with a line drawing of the Vector RS chassis with a clear view through the tempered glass side and top. They also have a fragile sticker advising not to drop the package as it has tempered glass inside which as we found can go wrong in a big hurry. There is also a sticker in place showing that the chassis color is designated as blackout and light TG.
The first of the thinner sides of the box shows a direct side shot of the Vector RS and its interior. Also shown here is the fractal logo and name along with another color label. Also here we have all of the UPC/EAN/etc. Labels for inventory management. Lastly, we have several warning and regulatory and safety compliance marks.
On the rear of the box, we see an exploded view of the Vector RS, and it shows all of the parts for the chassis along with the alternate top airflow panel, filter and cooling mounting tray. There are seven numerically listed features of the parts, and they are translated into four other languages besides English. The languages are German, Russian, Chinese, and Japanese.
The final thinner side of the box shows a spec sheet along with cooling fitment specs as well to help off the shelf users who may be looking for their next chassis at a local retail store.
The vector RS comes wrapped in a plastic bag to help avoid vibration abrasion damage to the chassis. Exterior to the bag the chassis is enveloped between two hard Styrofoam end caps, designed to absorb shock during travel and reduce the chance of damage to the chassis during transit. The tempered glass panels also have a plastic exterior film to help protect the glass from abrasions or scratches during shipping.
