The front of the Aegir is packed full of visuals and information. Between the image of the cooler and the cut away window, Xigmatek renders what Aegir may have looked like with a very recognizable Trident in hand. At the bottom left corner there is an explanation of HDT tech and how it's used in the Aegir. The bottom right shows that this cooler will work with both AMD and Intel out of the box.
This side doesn't offer much as far as information, but a look in the window explains what Xigmatek was talking about with the HDT technology. A quick peak shows that the two 8mm pipes run through the middle and the 6mm pipes run on the outer edges of the contact area.
The back of the packaging has the specifications list taking up the left side. Three images on the right give you a look at the HDT surface, the top of the base, and show the rubber fan mounts that isolate vibrations from the body of the cooler.
Under the large image of the Aegir, Xigmatek lists three key features in four languages.
Inside the box, the Aegir comes in a separate plastic compartment than the fan. Both section of the plastic packaging "lock" both the cooler and the fan in place so they don't wander around during transit. The grey box by the fan is where you will find the hardware, and under the cooler is where the paperwork will be located.
As I mentioned, Xigmatek shipped a second fan along with the Aegir cooler so I could test in dual fan mode. The XLF-F1254 is the same fan as the one shipped with the Aegir, but the specs here show this fan is capable of only 61 CFM and uses a 3-pin connection. I think this is a misprint, as when I checked the fan that is included; it is also rated as only 61 CFM at Xigmatek's own site.
On the back you will find all of the listed specifications. At the bottom there is a bit of a well created in the plastic packaging. In here you will locate 4 case mounting screws and a 4-pin Molex to 3-pin adapter to power the fan if a 3-pin connection is not readily available.
