The Hoplite ST comes in a fairly plain corrugated cardboard box. The box’s job isn’t to look pretty, it’s to protect the computer case on its commute, which it does well. The case is packed in the cardboard box with foam, assuring that the case is secure inside the box and to dampen and absorb shock from bumps or drops.
The front of the box is very plain. It includes the name of the case, model number, a graphic showing what the case looks like and some Enermax branding printed on the front.
The back of the box is identical to the front.
The accessories it comes with are a bag of standard screws and stand-offs, a small internal speaker, a user’s manual and two re-usable Velcro Enermax cable ties.
Now let’s check out the outside of the case itself.
