One of the most important components of a computer build is the case; it determines the ease of the system build, the longevity of the system as a whole, and the thermal performance of the system. Often, a decent case is overlooked due to budget, leaving a less desirable system build. This is where Raidmax comes in with the Hurricane. Raidmax is known for their computer cases that have the looks and performance of more expensive cases, but at a more affordable price tag. The Hurricane is available in 6 sixdifferent colors with or without a power supply. Touting three included fans, a side window, and LED lighting all for around $40, the Raidmax Hurricane just may be the perfect middle ground between cost and performance.
The Raidmax Hurricane comes in a standard cardboard box (there isn't really much room for innovation here). The front and back both have similar frontal views of the case, but the back has some thumbnails and brief descriptions of the special features of the case. The sides are also nearly identical, both containing the basic specifications of the case and the available colors.
The packaging is simple, yet effective. Two molded foam pieces protect the case from shock during shipping, while the plastic bag protects from scratches.
Inside the case you'll find a small bag of hardware, the system speaker, and the manual.
Now let's take a gander at the Hurricane itself.
