The Tattoo Pro came in the usual brown and black retail box. However, it does sport the interesting tribal “tattoo” styling on the box as well as a sketch of the chassis. The case itself was packed inside of a plastic bag and foam end pieces to protect it during shipping. After removing the packing material we can see the large side window and steel mesh front.
The lower rear corner of both side panels is where the “tattoo” styling can be located. I liked that it was a subtle accent as opposed to a dominant feature of the case. Taking a look at the rear we can see the 120mm rear exhaust fan, two watercooling pass-throughs, seven expansion slots, and a bottom mount PSU opening.
The last, but certainly not least, exterior feature is the top control panel and recessed tray. Skipping straight to the tray you will notice a built-in mini-USB cable. This is to allow for charging various devices and set them right on top of your case. In the accessories, which we will cover below, there is an adapter for mini to micro USB. If you use a Mophie Juice Pack on your iPhone like I do, this is the perfect setup. The control panel has a button to turn the LED lighting on/off, an eSATA port, two USB 2.0 ports, audio jacks, and the usual reset/power buttons. I was disappointed to note the lack of USB 3.0 ports on this case.
Next we will crack the case open and take a look inside.
