Packaging and Content
As with most things labelled "Extreme", they tend to all come with black packaging and GELID is no exception. Using the black insert really highlights the bright yellow/green colouration of the syringe of compound and the moniker on the handle of the included spreader. Just like the GC-2, GELID sent early samples to be reviewed so they could add the awards to the front of the packaging. Sad to say, this time it wasn't our award pasted there.
On the flip side of the insert there is GELID's own statement of the GC-Extreme followed by excerpts from the three sites that gave each award. Also included is the temperature comparison chart from one site using Intel's stock cooler to test with.
Carefully cutting through the plastic package, you can release the compound and spreader really easy. There is a very similar theme with the labeling of the GC-Extreme to the GC-2, just the color of the label and of course the names are different. The spreader has a different look to the previous one supplied with the GC-2; it doesn't help it spread any better, but I thought it was worth a mention.
