First Look- Packaging and Information
The Cooler Master N400 showed up at my door a little worse for ware on the outside as it was shipped with nothing but the box it came in with a shipping label slapped on it. UPS was not too brutal with the box so we will use it to the best of our abilities.
Our retail box comes fairly plain, not unexpected from a budget case and in no way a bad thing, what we have inside is what really matters.
With the box open we can see that the case is snug as a bug in a rug with nice foam for padding and a plastic bag cover to help protect against dings and scratches.
Cooler Masters N400 brings with it a few high-end features at a economical price including a painted interior, a clean front mesh bezel that includes two USB 3.0 ports, room for liquid cooling systems and more. There is no lack of features in this high value case.
Inside the box we also have the standard hardware of any case including a bag of standoffs, screws, and tie, a motherboard speaker ,and installation guide. Also included are three case filters and a removable bracket which will house up to two 2.5 hard drives.
