As always we begin with packaging. It's a simple yet informative thing to show as when you purchase a chassis, you honestly do not want any defects and scratches on it. The 200R is packaged in cardboard.
Once you take the unit out of the cardboard box you'll notice two layers of polystyrene protecting the unit, which on its end is covered in a plastic bag. Packaging was done carefully and the chances of damage and risk are minimal thanks to that.
So there it is. Looks like a run of the mill chassis very much, though distinctly different from the 300R, 400R and 500R SKUs.
The design is once again kept simple, no bright lights and screaming logos -- subtlety in full effect. The dark black design is easy on the eyes. Less is better, and that works out well here.
The chassis is made out of a Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces. As you can see at the front side, it supports (x3) 5.25", and internally (x4) 3.5"/2.5" tool-free drive bays.
When we flip around the unit we can see the side panel and back a little better. The panel can be removed with two thumbscrews. There are meshes for airflow, insidetwo cooling fans could be mounted.
The size of the chassis is by the way is 16.9 x 8.3 x 19.6 inches, or 430mm x 210mm x 497mm (H x W x L). The 200R has seven fan mounting points (if I counted right) for plenty of cooling (x5) 120mm/140mm fan mount locations, (x3) 120mm fan mount locations, Includes (x1) front-mounted 120mm fan and (x1) rear 120mm fan. In combination with the big meshes everywhere there is plenty of airflow really. The backside reveals that it has 7 card slots, no grommet holes here. No biggy whatsoever.
