Packaging of the Armor A30
Here's the front of the A30's box. If you are wondering what the "Flag" and "WCG" logos are all about, they are logos for the World Cyber Games organization, which is linked to Thermaltake's eSports division, dedicated to gamers. The front also lets us know this case's name, and that it's a USB 3.0 case. Unfortunately, this case was released before the USB internal header design was finished and uses a standard USB pass through cable.
Here's the side of the box; it lets us know that the Armor A30 might also come in a flavor with a PSU pre-installed. Though, no such option has been unveiled yet. The side of the box also lists off some features of the case, like its "oversized" 23cm fan. Technically the fan is not "oversized" though, as it was designed to be a 230mm fan. A bit of bad wording on Thermaltake's part, but only a minor complaint.
This is one of my favorite features to see on the back of a case's box; nice pictorials that define its features and let you know the airflow pattern. They also let you know about the modularity of the case, which is supposed to make it easier to install components inside. Personally, the design aspect looks like a solid one to me.
And here's the packaging of the Armor A30, which is pretty standard from any case manufacturer.
