Starting off with the water block packaging we get the block in the typical packaging from EK. The grey hexagonal pattern over a black background with orange highlights is the same as it was when I last used an EK block. What has changed is the EN sticker for the nickel plating and the block itself.
The block I asked for is the EK-FC7950, but I also requested the nickel and plexi combination to have a very aesthetically pleasing and excellent cooling experience all in one.
This side of the sleeve that covers the inner box again houses the information on the blocks name, type and coating of the included water block.
On the orange inner box ends that stick out of the sleeve, there are icons for all of the parts groups that EKWB has solutions for next to the EK logo.
The other longer side is mostly the hexagonal design, but at the right end of it, there is the company information with phone numbers and web addresses to get into contact with EK if the need should arise.
Once you slide off the sleeve that wraps the orange inner packaging, EK explains a bit on how you must be an expert to install this, their disclaimers and the warranty information for the included block.
Opening the inner packaging you are greeted by some paperwork with a bag tucked inside of the folds that contains the needed screws and silicone pads to get the EK-FC7950[EN] mounted to my video card.
Removing the paperwork and hardware you are then shown that you may have not thought of everything you need to get this block installed. EK offers categories of what they offer and provide links as to where to look at these parts. Under this flap, between two layers of foam, is where the block is actually located.
