Packaging

Starting with the top of the packaging, you see that there is the cooler naming on the left in the white area, and off to the right is a sticker denoting the award winning nature of this design, and above an image of the fan and cooler, you get a list of features.

Looking now at the front of the packaging you can see it repeats the top, sans the sticker. They do cover the awards, LGA2011 compatibility, RAM compatibility for LGA2011, the size, included fan, LNA adapter, the compatibility in general, included TIM and six year warranty are all covered.

This panel shows us specifications charts for both the tower and the fan used to cool it. You also get a box showing the inclusions with this cooler along with a pair of dimensional renderings of the cooler with the fan installed.

Noctua tells their customers in eight varying languages about what inspired this cooler and what should make it a success in your system.

Spinning the box once more we end up on a panel with eight features listed with an image and descriptions of what they are and how they benefit this coolers design.

Just like its little brother, when you pop the top on the NH-U14S, the hardware greats you immediately in these three boxes.

Packed under the hardware, you will find both the NF-A15 PWM fan and the NH-U14S cooler body surrounded in cardboard. There are shims of cardboard used to make this body fit in here very snugly, and unlike the NH-U12S where some of the fins had gotten bent, the NH-U14S arrived in much better shape.
