With the white backdrop, and the bold orange and bright blue highlights on this packaging, your eyes will immediately stop here as you scan across many cooler packages. On the front panel, we get an upward angled view of the Mugen Max off to the right, with its name written across it. Off on the left side is the company logo, a notation that this is LGA1150 ready, and another notation that this is a CPU cooler with an image of the base and heat pipes.
Where the image of the Mugen Max spills over to this side panel, we see that Scythe used this area to discuss the features of the cooler. This area covers the H.P.M.S. that hold the cooler securely, the T-M.A.P.S design of the fins for sectioned air flow, the use of the GlideStream 140mm fan, the dual fan capabilities, and its wide range of purposes.
Around back, there is much more bright orange, and near the top is the discussion of the two-year warranty that comes with the Mugen Max. At the bottom are some precautionary statements to make sure you know what you are doing before you attempt installation.
Again, Scythe chose orange to highlight the information provided here. We get three renderings of the cooler and two of the fan, both with the dimensions marked out on them. At the bottom, Scythe provides a multilingual specifications chart like the one we just covered.
Scythe never appeared to worry too much about inner packaging, and as we pop the top of the box, we see that has not changed. The cooler and fan do have a layer of cardboard to keep them apart, and the hardware is slid down one side. So, the outer packaging is also the majority of the inner packaging. While previous Scythe coolers have arrived slightly out of whack at times, our Mugen Max arrived in terrific shape.
