Since the establishment of the ATX standard in 1995 with the infamous beige boxes, inexpensive and/or lower-end computer case design has evolved very little to this day. With today's demand for larger, hotter components, along with more bang for the buck, the standard beige box just doesn't cut it any more. Raidmax has heard this demand and has brought the low-cost case up to 2010 standards. Enter the Raidmax Typhoon. Here you'll find a three-fan cooling system, side window, LED lighting, tool-less drive bays and a flat-black interior all for around $45! The Raidmax Typhoon brings enthusiast features to entry-level price tags, so let's see if it truly transcends the stereotype of inexpensive cases.
Much like any other case the Typhoon comes packaged in a plain and simple cardboard box. The front and back simply have the Raidmax logo and website; the only way to distinguish this being a Typhoon is the barcode on one of the sides. Also on the side is a sticker stating that this case does not have a power supply.
The case comes in fairly standard packaging; two molded foam pieces attached to cardboard to protect the case from blunt forces and a plastic bag to protect from scratches.
Inside the case you'll find a small bag of hardware including the system speaker and some paper washers. Oddly enough there was no manual.
Now on to a closer look at the outside of the case.
