Package & Hardware:

When it comes to the packaging, Cooler Master never lets us down with its fine artwork and quality of material used. On the front here you can see they have included a style package with useful information. They have quickly identified what capabilities this cooler possesses and outlined it clearly.

Moving around to the back side of this package they have gone into more detail with the dimensions of the product. This is great for those wanting to make sure they will not have fitment problems with the case they are using.

Going around to the side of the package, we find the detailed specification of the unit which will also help the consumer know what they are getting.

Once we have the package open you can see that they have everything packed nicely, which ensures that the unit will not get damaged during transport.

Taking a look at some of the hardware that is included, we have a 120mm PWM fan, Intel mounting plate with screws, AMD and Intel installation hardware and we have the warranty and instruction manual.

Let’s take a Closer Look at the Cooler.
