    System Layout and Features

    One of the biggest issues you will face when shipping a computer is making sure it shows up in one piece.  We all have heard the horror stories of failed Fedex and UPS deliveries where a careless driver delivers the box upside down or some "thrower" at the shipping facility decides to play the game of "let's find out what's inside?".  The point is your system is handled by many people on its journey so you need to make sure everything is protected.
    Cyperpower PC double boxes all of their systems.  The main computer is shipped in the original chassis container which is then placed in a larger box along with the system documentation, cables and extra parts.  Inside the main system you will find expandable shipping foam that is used to fill the internal cavity of the PC and prevent components from moving around and/or breaking free.  

    Our system showed up with everything intact and even featured the protective plastic over the custom side window.  Of course you will need to remove this packing foam before running the computer for the first time and while you're at it be sure to inspect all of the drive connections and anything else that may have been damaged in route.
    The Enermax Hoplite case is a typical mid-tower chassis that features top mounted controls for power and reset.  There is a small three position switch that controls the front fan.  You'll find three USB connections near by including two USB 2.0 and a single USB 3.0, as indicated in blue.

    A hot swappable hard drive dock can be found behind the front controls that allows you to swap in SATA drives for easy system backups and data transfers.
