As always, the packaging -- so that you know what to look for in the stores. Everything is packaged and bundled safely in the carton.
Cooler + 1 fans
Screws, studs etc and everything else needed
So summed up, once unboxed you'll spot the cooling unit consisting of the heatsink assembly, fan and brackets + back plate that support a very wide range of AMD and Intel processors. A little GC2 thermal paste is included as well. Also included is a special screwdriver, extra long, we'll show you why later on in the article.
The cooler is nice and big at dimensions of 130 (L) x 65 (W) x 159 (H) mm with the fans included. It weighs 720g. The fan can be used in PWM mode controlled by your motherboard. The unit works on not just Intel LGA 775, LGA 1155 and LGA 1156 CPUs, but also AM2(+), AM3 and FM1 processors from Advanced Micro Devices.
