Up Close: Packaging and Contents
Thermalright certainly haven't been wasting money on the packaging, and that's how we like it these days. With most of these being purchased on line what's the point of glitzy boxes. We much prefer the packaging simple and the prices low. Inside the cooler and fan come nestled in their own expanded foam chambers, with the accessories box secreted between the twin towers of the cooler
The accessories box is stuffed full of goodies, and gives the first inkling that you're dealing with a quality product, where attention to detail is high on the agenda. Along with a universal backplate with plastic motherboard protection pad you also get a universal mounting bracket so there's be no trying to work out which bracket goes with which CPU. The mounting bracket, like all the fixings is finished in the same dark Nickel coating. Added to that there's also a syringe of TIM, a spanner, and vibration absorbing pads to attach to the fan. The only real detractor here is the pair of conventional spring clip fan retainers, because although simple in principal, as we all know these can be a pig to attach and basically don't look that good when in place. On the plus side, the instructions are clear and comprehensive with all the various CPUs and languages separated. it might take a few moments to find the section you want, but once you have you're sorted.
