Packaging and Hardware
As with all of the other Swiftech products, the money goes to the product and not the packaging. They use a non-descript black cardboard box with a simple sticker on it keeping the price needed for the shipping container to a minimum.
On the sticker you can see in both English and French what product we have, and what is included inside of this box. You can also see that if you do need LGA775 hardware, it will be sent free upon request, so you aren't left out from getting the Apogee Drive II even with older sockets.
There wasn't a safety seal on the box, but when I opened it, I was greeted with the instructions and hardware sitting above the actual Apogee Drive II unit that is packed in the bottom.
Removing all of the goodies, except it seems I missed the thermal paste, you are now looking at the bubble wrap that surrounds the Apogee Drive II to help protect it, mostly from the hardware in the box.
Along with the Apogee Drive II block and pump combo unit, you get TIM-Mate thermal paste, a pair of plastic tubing clamps to go with the half inch barbed fittings. On the right are two plastic pieces, one green, and one blue, and these are to allow you to change the color behind the logo on the top of this device.
Since the Apogee Drive II ships with the LGA1155/1156 hardware on it, there is an additional back plate with this kit for LGA1366, and that is what you see here.
The instructions are very well written and simple to follow. For most users, all you will need to see is the front page that covers the mounting, but in its entirety, this manual will show you how to tear apart, maintain, and even change the logo plate to a color more suited to match your build.
