The Strike-X ST is presented in a rather eye-catching box with a flame featured on the front and back. The design depicts the chassis on the front whilst the back has a further two images. The sides feature the technical specifications. Inside the Strike-X ST is covered in a thick plastic sheet and held in place via dual Polyurethane pillars. As packaging goes, these pillars are much preferred as they dont break or crumble like polystyrene does.
Strike-X ST packaging catches the eye
Taking Strike-X ST out of its packaging we are met with a gamer type of chassis of that there is no doubt. The prominent side features a large semi-transparent mesh panel giving the ability to fix up to 6x 120mm fans or a single 200mm. Whilst the reverse features a solid side panel with the option to attach a 120mm fan behind the CPU socket for additional cooling.
Strike-X ST has the type of styling that only a certain category of gamers/enthusiasts have a taste for due to its garish, rugged appearance. In its favour are the sheer dimensions of the depth of this chassis revealing a significant amount of space for bigger components and systems.
