Packaging

The CNPS9900DF comes in a black box that the blue text really looks good on. That same blue is used in accent lines to attract the eye to the window allowing a view of the front fan and part of the fins. As for the rest of the panel they do mention twice that this is a dual fan cooler and I am pretty sure that is what the "DF" stands for.

Looking at the right side you can see the box is leaning a bit due to the hit to the lower right corner in transit. Aside from the dent, you get a large image of the CNPS9900DF with four smaller images showing off some of the features and accessories.

On the back of this box you get a list of eight features including things like it being high performance, mid-tower compatible, and that sexy black nickel coating. There is also a hole in the back that allows you to see the model number of the second fan on this cooler.

The left side of the box is mostly taken with an explanation of the composite heat pipes and why they were chosen. Under that will find a list of specifications for the technical information on the CNPS9900DF.

Opening the box you will find a cardboard insert that keeps the hardware that is now spilling out of the top from ever touching the cooler contained below.

Right out of the box you will find the CNPS9900DF inside of a form fitting clamshell packaging. This keeps the cooler centred in the box so that that dent we saw makes no difference to the cooler in any way. This layer of plastic is what makes the windows in the outer packaging as well.

I would have assumed that the clamshell would have been sufficient, but it seems Zalman went an extra step here. They also surround the fins in another layer of plastic to keep the cooler from even getting to the outer clamshell. I can tell you it works; this sample is in perfect condition.
