Package:

Taking a look at Xigmatek’s packing, you can see that they didn’t cut any corners on the artwork and design. They have listed their exclusive ceramic coating technology, and they really want to show off the stealth design and matte black finish. On the front, they have also included a clear front window showing first hand exactly what you are getting.

Moving around to the rear of the package, Xigmatek has listed the specifications of the cooler. They did a great job here with the same artwork.

Once out of its package, you can see they have included hardware for the following products – Intel Socket: LGA 2011 / 1366 / 1156 / 1155 / 775, AMD Socket: FM2 / FM1 / AM3 / AM2+ / AM2. They have also include a 120mm PWM fan with a smoked housing that has 4 white LEDs. There is also an instruction manual along with warranty information available in case you run into any problems.

Taking a look at some additional hardware here they have included a back plate that is compatible for both the Intel and AMD platforms. It’s great to see they have made this universal for both.
