The Noctua NF-S12 and NF-R8 Cooling fan packaging is fairly standard, and provides only relevant information regarding the fans, their specification and content.

Inside the cardboard exterior the fans are protected by a plastic bubble which houses the fan and included accessories. The plastic bubble insert should be fairly hardy and prevent any real damage to the fan caused by knocks and bumps in transit.

Plastic Protection

You will notice the somewhat 'loud' colour scheme of fawn and chocolate brown that Noctua have gone with for their NF Series fans. Admittedly the colours won't be to everyone's taste, but it's the performance that really matters. For some reason under the lighting conditions the fan shrouds appear a salmon colour, but they are definitely fawn in colour.
