Corsair sent its H100i GTX in the same black box all Hydro Series coolers come in. Along the bottom, under the bright red lettering in the naming, we find that this has Corsair Link capabilities, it comes with two fans, and that there is a five-year warranty.

This longer side panel does not have all that much to offer, but along with the naming at the top, near the bottom, we find a list of contents. This is then repeated in five other languages to cover their markets.

The same goes for this taller side panel. While they obviously used the other panels to say all they had to give, this panel offers just the company name and logo at the top with the product naming taking center stage here.

On this longer side panel, we start off with a list of six key features found in the H100i GTX, and at the bottom is information on the Corsair Link system. Both of which are repeated as well in many languages.

The last of the side panels addresses the socket compatibility from both camps, and also addresses that you will need an available USB 2.0 header on the motherboard, and a free download to take advantage of Corsair Link associated features.

On the back, we see Corsair covers the fans, the improved cold plate and pump, and also the radiator at the left. In the middle, we see results of Corsair's own testing above dimensional renderings of the radiator. Then to the right is a full list of specifications for the H100i GTX.

As all their AIOs do, this H100i GTX comes packed in a compartmentalized inner packaging. On top of keeping the bits from touching each other, they also wrap everything in plastic, and the fans are cardboard sleeved to make sure there are no minor scuffs or scratches either. As to this particular sample, it has arrived in perfect shape and is ready for our abuses.
