Packaging

Even though I don't think they consulted with Tony Stark, the front of the packaging has an Iron Man-ish look to it. At the top is the full name of this ultimate liquid CPU cooler, and at the bottom is the company name and slogan along with a CES1023 Innovations award.

The right side of this package gives you a look at the complete system as it will be once it gets powered on. Under that image there is a compatibility list followed by a full list of specifications.

The back offers features delivered to its customers in nine languages. This list covers the 400W TDP of this design, the dual radiator design, that each radiator is dual path, the high performance pump, and the high performance grease that is supplied. It also covers that this is the first cooler to use nanofluids, that it will take on a second fan, the black pearl color of the Nickel plating, and that the head unit and the fan has blue LED lighting.

Our remaining panel shows us the Reserator 3 MAX much closer than any other image that has been presented this far. They also take the time to repeat the award they received from CES2013, and it is rightly something to be very proud of.

Inside of the box you will find that the Reserator 3 MAX is completely packed in a thick plastic, snap together, inner packaging to protect the cooler in transit. As for the hardware and the paperwork, they are just resting on the inner packaging at the top of the box. While not the most secure packaging for all of the components that we have seen, it was good enough to deliver this halfway around the globe and still arrive in perfect condition.

As you can tell, the inner plastic packaging that is designed to secure the cooler is well designed. It allows for the head unit and the radiator to stay in their own sections while leaving just enough room to pass the tubing and fan wiring next to them as they get packed into these two halves.
