I have to say that I like the new style of packaging that GIGABYTE is using. The box for the P67A-UD7 is a glossy black with a partially faded image of the board on the front. The part that is most visible is the new 1155 CPU socket and the redesigned cooling. Of course, there is still room for a few logos and a corner banner proclaiming the P67A-UD7's Unlocked Performance.

Under the "hood" of the box we find some more typical marketing material. There is small window that allows you a glimpse of the motherboard (the area around the CPU socket). There are also a few images of the new cooling system and a drawing of how it works.

On the inside of the flap there is even more marketing material. This is similar to the usual items you would find on a higher-end motherboard.

Inside is a nice pile of loot. You get a few SATA cables, a bracket for external SATA (including power cables), an SLI bridge and even a Three-way SLI bridge.

One thing that is interesting to find in the box is the warning label about not using an 1156 CPU in this board. This is a fairly important warning as the sockets are very close in size. You can actually fit an 1156 CPU in this board. However, it will not work and in the end you will have a dead board and CPU for your efforts.
