bequiet Shadow Rock Slim Review
Up Close: Packaging and Contents
When it comes to packaging, Dark and sleek is how bequiet boxes role. They are however still very informative thanks to the oodles of technical data and diagrams picked out in white on the black background.
The cooler is retained in the box by a mix of foam sheets and cardboard inserts. It's not the most elegant solution in the world, but as the cooler arrived undamaged we have to assume it's effective.
Along with the cooler you also get a small fold out sheet of multi language instructions. Thankfully when folded out the sheet maintains manageable proportions, unlike others we could mention (Yes Cooler Master, we're looking at you). The diagrams though are a little on the small side, and if we didn't already have a good idea where we were going we think they would be quite hard to follow. Still there's always the build section of this review to show you how if you need help. Along with the usual screws, bequiet also include a separate brackets for AMD and Intel mounting, although both will utilise the same universal back plate . There's also a small syringe of TIM and a pair of spring clips to attach an additional 120mm fan.
