In sort of a bad Photoshop job, the Brocken ECO image has been placed on some wood planks and a black background to highlight the cooler. The black background also makes the company name, logo, and product name pop out with the use of white text.
On the right side of the packaging, we find a trio of renderings across the top that offer dimensions. Below these renderings, we see the naming once again, and we also get our first peek at the Gapless H.D.C. of the base.
The back of the box offers a specifications chart that is no more informative than the list we just discussed. It also offers a compatibility list of CPU sockets this cooler will fit, and a large chunk at the bottom is used to denote that this is a CPU cooler.
A major part of the design and its efficiency is due to the Wing Boost 2 fan included in the kit. Here they address its design, offering that the fans can provide good flow, good pressure, and still keep the noise levels to a minimum. Alpenfoehn even explains bits in the fan's design and how they help performance.
The Brocken ECO and its fan are sandwiched between two protective plastic trays to keep them safe during transit. The trays keep the bits inside off the walls of the box, and offer a place at the bottom to ship all of the hardware that goes along with the Brocken ECO. While we do prefer better methods of packing coolers, Alpenfoehn does prove that when done right, more economic packing methods can be successful.
