CRYORIG packs the R1 Ultimate into a large cardboard box with (strangely enough) the R1 Universal cooler as the image that takes up the entire front panel. Inside the box is in fact the R1 Ultimate, and it is also marked as black in color. The last bit to notice is the stripe at the bottom with the multiple colors, which you will also see carried over to the fans of this cooler.
As the main image continues off onto the right side of the packaging, there are three things that CRYORIG thinks you need to know about this cooler: It is designed around compatibility with many motherboards (cases and socket types for starters), the cooler installs quickly and in five easy steps, and they are dealing with noise levels by offering low noise PWM fans with acoustic noise cancellation absorbers on them.
On the back of the packaging, we see the same things we discussed on the previous page. There are dimensional renderings of the R1 Ultimate, and you are also given the full specifications on the packaging, so there is little need to go to the site for more information when pondering this purchase in the store. The bottom of the panel shows all of the compatible sockets that this cooler will install on.
The last external panel offers very little. There is just a rendering of the cooler in grey on a black backdrop, and both the CRYORIG and R1 naming are placed here as well in chromed lettering.
Once you lift the top of the box, you are greeted with the information that not only do you get a three-year product warranty, but by registering this product, the warranty is extended. Also, by registering this product, you are made a VIP member of the CRYORIG website, and have chances to win free goodies.
Inside of the box, there is first a thin box that contains all of the hardware needed to go with the R1 Ultimate. Under that box, there is another box that contains the R1 Ultimate. All of the packaging is cardboard other than the bags on the hardware, and the cooler body, and even so, the R1 Ultimate arrived in perfect shape for our testing.
