The front of the packaging is pretty busy to look at and absorb all of the information provided here. At the top is a look at the cooler inside along with the mention of "stealth technology" above the cut-away that allows a glimpse at the fan. At the bottom there is an image of a stealth fighter and the features listed to the left of it.

On this side there are two images of the cooler, one from the top and the other with the cooler lying on its side to show the black coating applied and the H.D.T. base.

The back displays the specifications chat most prominently, but at the bottom is a brief explanation of the ceramic coating technology along with a pair of images to show how the rough surface dissipates heat over the traditional aluminum fin.

The last side of the packaging houses more images of the included cooler to show again the coating, the hardware used to mount this cooler and what the cooler will look like if you buy another fan to do a push/pull configuration.

Upon opening the box you are immediately given the hardware bag as it sits in a cut out portion of the inner foam that supports the cooler below it.

The high density foam is in two sections. One layer of what surrounds the fan on the outside edges. This is why there is a cover laid over the fins with the second layer of foam surrounding five sides of the cooler body.
