There is one point here to clarify: there are two packages available for the Spedo: the "regular" and the "Advance". They are identical except that the regular Spedo does not have the 230mm fan on the top panel, and it is also lighter due to the interior partitions not being included.

The Spedo Advance Chassis box is typical Thermaltake design: black box with a prominent picture of the chassis and a boatload of smaller pictures with specifications and feature write-ups on the rear and sides.? Admittedly, it does look rather tantalizing, hinting at what lies inside and giving an indication of what the main marketing features are for the case (should you actually shop in person nowadays though).? The rear of the package shows images and text explaining the features that come with the Spedo Advance Package.? Thermaltake’s box thankfully has handles cut out on each side, making it much easier to carefully move the Spedo, rather than having to lug it around awkwardly like I?ve seen on several other manufacturers? boxes.

When you open the box, you can see that Thermaltake took pride in making sure that the Spedo was well protected; once the styrofoam has been removed, you can see the cloth bag that protects the chassis. This bag sports the Thermaltake logo as well as the Spedo Advance Package name; a nice little attention to detail there, usually something that often comes with boutique system builders actually.

The accessories package includes the following:

  • EPS 12V Extender Cable
  • Motherboard Standoffs and Screws
  • 24-pin EATX Extender Cable
  • 4 x 3.5" / 5.25"? Adapter Plates
  • One 120mm x 25mm Fan
  • One Floppy Drive Bezel
  • One 5.25" FDD Adaptor

Let’s take a closer look at the exterior now.
