 Package:

When it came to the packaging, Silverstone stuck with the basics and used a brown box with its logo and artwork printed in plain black ink. While there isn’t anything fancy about the package here, we have to say that the material used is no compromise. It’s still top quality to help with the protection of the cooler during transport.


One detail that we really liked is the detailed specifications clearly printed on the side of the box. This gives the consumer great “at a glance information.”

Once you have un-boxed the cooler, you will find it well packed. There is a plain white box and instruction manual as part of the contents.

With the contents fully unpacked, we found a pretty extensive set of hardware that is included. Inside the white box, we have the mounting screws for both Intel and AMD platforms along with a universal back plate along with fan mounting hardware. While this hardware is not complex, we do suggest you take a good look at the instruction manual to figure out which hardware will be used for your specific platform.

Now that you have seen the package and hardware, let’s take a closer look at the Cooler.

      Hi, Thanks for reading our review. There are quite a few coolers out there and perform great. What country are you located in?? If you are in a country that can get a hold of Phenteks, they make great coolers. Also for the AMD set-up, DeepCool Gamer Assassin was a great cooler as well. You can find our DeepCool Gamer Assassin review here as well.

      If you need further help, join our forum and post your questions and we can help you out.
