Xigmatek Thor's Hammer S126384 H.D.T. CPU Cooler - Packaging

From CES preview to full review, Xigmatek has shipped the Thor's Hammer to our lab for testing. Let's see how well this i7 compatible cooler performs.

The Package

Xigmatek has gone all out with the premium packaging surrounding the Thor's Hammer S126384. This time they have enclosed it in a box covered in a prismatic, mirrored background, with a thick layer of black trim applied to embellish the package. You can see they have allowed for buyers to see the dual layered heat-pipes through this cut-away window.

Spinning the box to the right brings us to another cut-away window. This time it is to allow a good look at their H.D.T., four heat-pipe base. This window is surrounded by a couple of images of Thor's Hammer printed on the same backing.

The back of the package is where Xigmatek has listed the Thor's hammer S126384's specifications. To the right is their interpretation of Thor wielding his mighty hammer, just above a complete image of the CPU cooler itself.

The left side of the Thor's Hammer packaging shows a nice graphic image of the name above their hammer and the art is followed underneath with four lists of features, in languages other than English.

With Thor's Hammer being removed from the chest of sorts, we can see Xigmatek has done a nice job of keeping it safe for shipping. They cup both ends of the cooler in a thin plastic mold that keeps the cooler snug inside the box. You can see the hardware is shipped inside the top molded half and the instruction manual is slid behind the cooler for shipment. A bit of a surprise to me was the lack of a fan supplied with the Thor's Hammer.
