IBUYPOWER Paladin XLC Phantom Series System ReviewThu, Aug 19, 2010 - 12:00 AM
Unboxing the iBUYPOWER Paladin XLC Phantom
One day in the not too distant past UPS dropped by with a rather large package for me. I wasn’t sure what I was getting but it was big. According to the shipping documents it weighed in at 57 pounds and measured an impressive 30.5″x30.5″x17″ (L*W*H). A package this size had to be something fun so I took a few pictures as I went. As I went I discovered that it was the iBUYPOWER Paladin XLC Phantom!
As I opened up the packaging to a yet unknown product, I could tell it was very well packaged.
Removing the first layer of foam packaging revealed a second, thicker layer of foam for additional protection.
Once that the second layer of foam was removed I saw that it was the NZXT Phantom Case, or so I thought. 57 pounds did seem like it was a bit heavy for an empty case, though there was quite a bit of packing material.
Opening up the packaging for the NZXT Phantom Case it still wasn’t obvious to me that it was a full system, but I had my guesses since I was expecting a system from iBUYPOWER though I wasn’t sure as to what the system was. The first real indication was the bundle that was included inside of the packaging.
As you can see the bundle that was inside of the packaging had all of the above parts that don’t typically come with just a case. The iBUYPOWER Paladin XLC Phantom comes with everything you need to fire up your system. Above you can see the iBUYPOWER keyboard and mouse. Also included is a power cable, the driver discs, accessories from the GIGABYTE X58A-UD3R motherboard, PaLiT GeForce GTX 460′s and all of the unused screws from the NZXT Phantom Case. iBUYPOWER also includes an installation disc for Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit.
