Packaging

The packaging for the Core P5 TG V2 is flat pack like we have seen on all previous Core P5 variations. The box flaps state there is tempered glass inside. This does not seem like any sort of breakage warning and more of an informational mark.

Here we have the box form the side and you can see what I mean by it is flat packed. This side is very thin with a few specs listed in several languages on the side.

The next of the thinner sides of the box shoes the name along with a V2 decal to show it's a V2. Here is the first sign we get that this could be fragile as its listed as handle with care. There is no note of what part is fragile but I assume this has to do with being careful with tempered glass.

The next of the thinner sides of the box covers the spec table as we listed on the opening page of this review. There are also some UPC and other certification and safety marks here which unfortunately we cannot see very well due to the way the shipping labels were placed.

Here we have our standard shot of the chassis still in its wrapping removed from the box. As you can see the optional motherboard tray sits in the soft polystyrene shell. It is plastic bagged and has its mounting screws within this as well to ensure no mix up of screws.

The opposite side of the wrapped chassis and parts shows the foam cover over the tinted tempered glass panel.

Removing the layer of soft polystyrene foam we now find the main chassis components held in place in harder Styrofoam shells which encapsulate the Core P5 main chassis and ancillary components.
