Alright here we can see the actual kit, nicely packaged. As always Corsair bundles everything you need, from the primary gear to the minor stuff such as thermal paste and even UV reflective anti-algae fluid.
Everything is packed neat and tidy, let's have a look at what's packaged in the box.
Corsair Nautilus 500 packaging:
What's quite important to understand is that this kit is functional for both AMD and Intel processors. All brackets are included. The newer socket AM2 should work also with the regular 939/940 retention bracket.
That green goop is a Bottle of Corsair COOL anti-corrosion / anti-algae water additive. To ye lower right ye shall find one all copper CPU water block with "Micro Channel Technology." Ooh sexy! That's just marketing for a narrow pipeline :)
Notice that it still has a slim film of plastic on the copper side of the water block. This needs to be removed before installation. It's a little protection film to prevent scratching the copper. Oh and hey .. plenty of tubing
1 AMD Socket 754, 939 and 940 retention bracket (AM2 should fit also).
1 Intel LGA 775 retention bracket
1 Intel socket 478 retention bracket
1 Foam pad
1 hypodermic with thermal grease
1 PCI pass-through bracket with internal 4-pin power connector
1 4-pin Power extension cable
2 Quick connect self sealing connectors
2 Quick grip clams
Oh and let me not forget the manual
The Nautilus 500's casing is made of black plastic and has only a few external features. On the front left of the unit there is a small opening to one side that shows the level of liquid in the reservoir. The problem here is that you just can't see it properly. You have no idea when you need to refill the reservoir over time. So periodic bi-monthly checks are recommended.
