NZXT Respire T40 CPU Cooler Review

Packaging is almost identical to that of the T20. NZXT keeps with the white background with the hint of blue, and the T40 standing out right in the center. At the bottom you not only have the name of the cooler, but icons to the right denoting some of the features.




On the right side of the box there are three dimensional drawings of the T40 to get you started to see if it will fit inside your case. Below that you can find the specifications chart we just went over.




On the back there is another image of the T40 with six features pointed out on both sides and below it. These cover the 120mm fan, the aluminum fins, fan mounts, the base, the mounting hardware, and the patented heat pipes used.




On the last side of the outer packaging you see a description of what makes up a Respire Series CPU cooler, and that gets followed up with an actual list of the supported CPUs from Intel above the list for AMD.




This is the inner packaging from the original cooler. The T40 is supported inside of the clear plastic with the hardware only being separated from the base with one thin layer. I am not quite sure what they are doing to change this, but I am told it is being taken care of.




This is the inner packaging and the second cooler I was shipped. As you can see this one shipped without the hardware in place, and the plastic has broken near the base under the weight of the cooler. Had there been hardware there, it would have likely ended up the same as the original.
