With all the choices out there today computer cases can be a hard thing to buy, especially when you don’t know what you are looking for. Today we have a case from Ultra products – the m998. We will take a closer look to see exactly what this case is made of.

The box the case came in was shorter, longer, and wider than a regular computer case box. My first thought was that it was going to be a huge monstrous thing, very durable, probably made of pure steel, and really heavy. But when I opened the box it was certainly wider and longer but it actually wasn’t very heavy at all. That's probably due to the light material the case is made out of rather than my immense muscles.

The case came wrapped in plastic and at the top and bottom a form of Styrofoam fitted the case to the box perfectly. This styrofoam was stuff that didn’t squeak like regular Styrofoam does. Ah, blessed silence!

There were quite a number of little accessories included with the case. There were a whole whack load of screws – one bag of regular screws as well as motherboard mounts, two bags of little black screws, and a small bag of power supply screws. Power cables were not in short supply either, as 12 cables of several different types were included. Also in this package came one fire-wire cable, and a motherboard clip for all the input ports on the motherboard. To top it all off, a set of wheels were added. These wheels screw on to the bottom of the case so that the case can move around without having to be picked up.

The instructions were well laid out with pictures for installing stuff, also, a diagram of the wires for the speaker, front side USB ports, LED lights, etc. were displayed.
