Packaging

With a new series of products comes new packaging. This time the Hydro Series H60 is packaged in a grey box with light blue and black splashes to accent the layout. The image here does give you an idea of the new H60, but the flatness of the head unit doesn't do justice for the actual product.

On this longer side of the package, there is a logical explanation as to why one should make the move to water cooling their CPU. They cover the weight, the noise levels, and the obvious decision to keep that CPU you just bought as cool as possible so it will last longer, protecting the larger investment.

This side is kept really simple with the H60 name over some wavy lines across the lower half of the panel with only the Corsair name and logo at the top to break up the grey.

The bottom of the box even houses quite a bit of information. On the left are the results of Corsair testing this cooler with an Intel 3770K CPU, while on the right is the list of compatibility. After a description saying this will fit in most cases with a 120mm fan opening in the rear, it finishes at the bottom with a list of what comes in the box.

This smaller side of the packaging has the same offerings as the other side did, but this time there is a chart with the dimensions and specifications of the included SP120L fan.

On the last panel to cover on the outside you are given a list of four features. This covers the advanced fan used, the larger tubing, an advanced cold plate and the magnetic mounting.

When you get the top off of the box you are given all of the paperwork as it lies on the dense foam used to isolate the paper from the cooler, taking up the extra space.

Under the dense foam is a recycled cardboard container that has separate compartments for all of the components. As an added measure to ensure the surfaces of the fan, the head unit, and the radiator, they are all packed inside of plastic bags.
