Package: 

Thermalright didn’t put much work into the package here. We found it boxed in your typical brown box with the Thermalright printed logo on the front. The box is sturdy and didn’t find any issues with this type of packaging.

On the side of the package we only find the model name “Archon SB-E X2.” While most users will probably do some research before their purchase, it would have been nice to see more useful info for the consumer.

Once the cooler was out of its package, we found the 2x140mm fans, the Cooler, instruction manual and the installation hardware. Everything was packaged quite carefully and well protected.

Once we got the hardware package opened, we found a pretty extensive set of hardware for both Intel and AMD platforms. The quality of the hardware is top notch and the instructions were clear and easy to understand. As we move forward we are going to take a look at one particular bit of hardware from Thermalright that we found unique.

Let’s take a closer look at the Archon SB-E X2 Cooler
