Fractal Design packages the CORE 1000 in a plain cardboard box with a few color accents to highlight the brand. Considering who this case is aimed at, any cost saving measures, no matter how minuscule make sense. Both the front and back hold an image of the chassis, while you will find a list of key features on the rear as well. Both smaller sides offer a holes, allowing you to carry it home comfortably from the shop or post office. Considering the size and weight, this is not really necessary.
The CORE 1000 is sandwiched between two fairly sturdy Styrofoam spacers.
You will receive a manual, a drive bay cover for 3.5 inch drives and a bag of screws. Due to the price of the chassis there is nothing else included.
