Packaging

The front of the box for the Kraken X62, 280mm liquid cooler, is white. With clear text at the top of the panel, this leaves NZXT plenty of room to put an image of the cooler, with the head unit powered, front and center.

The next panel we come to is purple, and begins with specifications, shows socket support, covers the warranty, and even delivers performance results. There is an annotation to the thirty-six percent increase in size over the Kraken X52, and that this cooler results in a twenty-six-degree drop in temperatures versus the stock cooler on an overclocked 4770K.

We see another white panel as we spin around to the back, and this panel has a lot to look at. There is an image of the Kraken installed in a chassis and reasons why this should be your next cooler. Features are listed at the bottom, while the right side is used to display one of the windows in the CAM software, to give you an idea of what to expect.

Back to purple again for the last panel of the box. Here we can see a full list of features repeated in eleven languages in total, and near the bottom are some barcodes and the serial number of the unit.

Just like the rest, the Kraken X62 is separated into compartments in the inner cardboard packaging. The head unit and tubing are inside of a plastic bag, while the radiator and fans are slid into cardboard sleeves. The hardware is slipped in between the fans and the radiator, and the wiring is found on top of the tubing. This is standard when it comes to AIO packaging, and has never let us down, and the excellent condition that our Kraken X62 arrived in can attest to that.
