Keeping in synch with other CMStorm products, the packaging is entirely black, as it houses a large image of the SF-17 on it. Below the naming of this gaming notebook cooler, there are features like the silence, height adjustment, and the 4-port hub listed concluding the information given here.
This smaller panel of the packaging is one of the sides. It only shows the SF-17 name in the stylized and chrome-like font.
The long panel at the bottom of the packaging tells us that this is a gaming notebook cooler, the SF-17, and to visit their site for more information. After this is repeated some twenty-two times, there is a dark image of the SF-17 with the LED lighting on off tot he right.
The other small side offers only the Cooler Master and CMStorm names and logos. The top of the packaging with a handle in it for easy carrying has this handle in the middle and what we saw on these smaller sides on either side of it. This is why I did not deliver an image of it.
The back is where you are going to find out the most about this SF-17. You are given a look at the top of the SF-17 next to four smaller images covering features like the 180mm fan, the USB hub and controls, wire management and adjustability. As you move further right, you are also given a specifications chart. There is also a list of nine features listed at the bottom, and they are delivered in eleven languages this time.
Inside of the box, the SF-17 is first wrapped in a plastic liner to keep all of the surfaces from being abraded in transit. Then to keep the cooler centered and protected from drops there are dense foam end caps used for this. There is also a user manual and cable that are set on top of the cooler for transit. The packaging is sufficient for their needs and was able to deliver my sample to me in perfect condition.
