I would like to thank Montech PC for supplying the review sample.
Montech has managed to carve itself out as an affordable alternative to many mainstream brands out there, usually pushing the price to performance envelope while presenting cases with trusted and true themes. Past reviews of the Montech Air 900 with its Pure Base series design inspiration or the Montech Air X with its HAF-inspired dual 200 mm fans have shows that Montech products tend to deliver what bigger brands offer at a much lower price point. That balance shifts a little bit with the Montech Sky One ARGB, which is inching towards that $100 line slowly while still offering something we are only used to seeing from a few established brands: a fine metal-mesh front cover with 1-mm-sized holes. So let's jump right into the review!

Montech ships the Sky One chassis in a plain brown box with an image of the enclosure on front and a set of multi-lingual marketing bulletin points on the rear. You will find the chassis specifications and another image of the enclosure on the smaller sides.
Two compact foam spacers hold the case in place and protect it during shipping, while a plastic bag keeps away fingerprints and light scratches.
