As always, the packaging -- well, everything is packaged, cushioned and bundled safely in the box. Let's rip 'r open though.
Once unboxed you'll spot the liquid cooling unit consisting out of the radiator, fan, tubing, pump/cooling block. Most pre-fitted and ready to use of course.

Quick Start Guide
So summed up, once unboxed you'll spot the cooling unit consisting of the radiator assembly, fan and brackets + back plate that support a very wide range of AMD and Intel processors. A little thermal paste is pre-applied on the cooler for you.
Here we have the H100i unit, we'll need to mount the two variable PWM fans (120mm), pump and radiator assembled in one single unit. Both fans are re-wired on one connector and are controlled from a RPM/PWM controller that resides in the cooling block. With Corsair's LINK software you can regulate it and setup you RPM preferences. We'll show you that later on in the article.
