The Package

Xigmatek went with a simple packaging theme with just shades of grey and white as the backdrop. Over the backdrop is an image of the Prime SD1484 with the fan installed looking right back at you. In the fine print at the bottom you find "the legend of silent gaming cooling system" is what Xigmatek has to say about it.

The Heat-pipe Direct Touch technology is used with the Prime as well. You can see the four 8mm diameter heat pipes separated by parts of the base plate. The pipes are then milled once they are installed, exposing the copper under the Nickel plating.

Around to the back, Xigmatek gives you some close up images on some of the more predominant features. They cover the universal mounting system, the new edge design of the fins, the dual fan option and another shot of the H.D.T. base.

Here we get yet another angle to gaze at the SD1484. Below the image of the Prime is a full specifications chart to inform those who are buying this off the shelf.

The top of the packaging covers most of the things we have already discussed, but since they took the time to place the information here, it is worthy of the image.

Something lost with a lot of packaging is the support system inside that keeps the cooler in good shape even if the box takes a tumble or two. Opening the front of the package, I was greeted with thick foam snugly holding the 140mm fan in the box.

Removing the contents, you find the Prime cooler in the bottom surrounded on all sides, but the top with dense foam to ensure the safety of the included components. The cooler body is also wrapped in plastic and has a desiccant package between the pipes. That leaves us the dark grey hardware box on the right side.
