The Core 3000 comes inside a relatively small and simple cardboard box. The artwork on the box is minimal, limited to a sketch of the actual case. Inside the box the case is protected by two polystyrene foam pieces and a plastic bag.

Inside the case you will find a well written installation guide, a 3.5” floppy disk front panel adapter, the necessary mounting hardware (screws and stand-offs), several black cable ties and a fan controller. It is noteworthy that every last one of the screws is black.
