Along with a QR Code, we find the NH-D15S naming off to the left, and again repeated at the top of the right side, and we see this is a D-Type Premium Cooler. The sticker to the right tells us this is based off the NH-D15, and over a close up look at the fins, we see a list of eight features found in this design.

With naming again at the top and off to the right side, we find that the specifications chart in the larger section and the pair of dimensional renderings at the bottom right corner are much more worth mentioning.

The back of the box is then used for 11 features along with some iconography to help point out what they are all on about. This covers things from compatibility, included fan and potential for more cooling, on through the hardware included bits, and ends noting the six-year warranty.

This last panel is where we find out that this new cooler is based on the award winning NH-D15 design, and that this version has been custom tailored to provide superior RAM and PCI-e compatibility.

Opening the box, we are greeted with a thick layer of dense foam that we needed to remove. Under it, we find a hardware box slid down the left side, and the body of the cooler and the fan inside of the larger box to the right. We also like that dense foam is used all around the packaging, and even with the crushed corner on the box, the cooler inside arrived to us in perfect condition.
