Packaging

On what is the top of the box, we find Corsair offers a large image of the H80i GT on it with the cooler name large and in charge near the bottom in blue and grey. We also see notation to the Link, the two fans, and the five-year warranty at the bottom.

While this side panel goes mostly unused, Corsair wants to be sure that from any angle you may walk up on this box, that blue and grey combo grabs your eyes and makes you want to pick it up and see what this H80i GT is all about.

One of the longer sides of the box covers two things. Here we see a list of five features that are repeated in five more languages. The same can also be said for the lower section where they cover the customizable performance with the use of Corsair Link.

On this taller side panel, we see that Corsair gives not only the socket compatibility that this cooler will fit, but also goes into detail as to the specific processors as well. They also mention that you will need an empty USB 2.0 header on your motherboard and a free download to take advantage of the Link features and controls.

The last side panel of the box doesn't have much to offer as far as amount, but they do take the time to list the boxes contents, so that when you open it up you can easily tell if anything is missing.

The bottom of the box has a ton to offer customers. It covers the included fans, that it uses and improved cold plate, extra thick radiator, and all this before they show results of some in house testing. There are a couple dimensional drawings at the bottom, a list of specification to the right, and again information about Corsair Link at the bottom.

The inner packaging has not changed, as we find a compartmentalized inner layer that keeps all the components in specific sections. Everything is either wrapped in cardboard or plastic to also help protect the cooler more, and just in case there is a layer of foam that covers all of this, allowing this H80iGT to arrive in terrific condition.
