It is light, due to the all aluminum design, and it has a removable motherboard tray. Before we get in deep into the M998, lets take a quick look at its specifications and features.

When I got the case, the box looked like it had taken a beating during shipping as a couple nice gouges could be seen on the side. I hoped the case wasn’t damaged.
After removing it from the box, I was quite pleased to see that the case had not been harmed. The case was protected top and bottom with styrene and the whole case was wrapped in plastic.
