As always we start with the un-boxing -- well, everything is packaged, cushioned, and bundled safely in the box. Let's rip that packaging open.
Once opened up you'll spot the liquid cooling unit consisting of the radiator, fan, tubing, pump/cooling block. Add to that a bit of thermal paste (Arctic MX-5).
You will have noticed it, the fans are pre-installed and cables have already been connected and tidied up for you, hurrah! I don't get what all LCS providers do this. It makes installation so much easier.
You'll spot a back-plate that supports a wide variety of CPU sockets; Intel LGA 2011 / 1366 / 1156 / 1155 / 1150 / 1200 and AMD Socket AM3 / AM4 based processors can be used in combination with this cooler.
- Liquid CPU Cooler
- Mounting kit for all modern CPU sockets
- Three Fans
- Radiator mounting screws
- Thermal compound (MX-5)
Summed up, once unboxed you'll spot the cooling unit consisting of the radiator assembly, fans, and brackets + back-plate that supports a very wide range of AMD and Intel processors. If you look to the far right of the radiator you can see a refill cap. Handy, but the kit must come out for you to be able to refill it of course.
