Since this cooler is named after a mountain, it only seems fitting that the illustration behind the cooler image is of a mountain as well. The Alpenfoehn name and logo can be found near the top, and below that information, there is a cut away in the box for viewing the cooler inside. The product name can be found near the bottom. There are also some icons covering the PWM fan, the slim design, the six heat pipes, and the enlarged fin area.
At the top of this side we find an image of the base on the Himalaya II. Here we can also find information regarding the award winning Wing Boost fans, its technology, and its geometry. They even mention the fact that a Y-splitter cable is not needed for dual fan operation due to the pigtail they added to this fan design.
On the back of the packaging we simply find the company name at the top, another image of the cooler with mountains as a backdrop, and the product naming just below the cooler image.
The last side offers the specifications we have already covered, a section relaying the product's purpose, and some dimensional renderings.
The inner packaging is presented in layers. The fan is packed in a thin box at the bottom, and above the fan there is a layer of dense foam. The plastic wrapped cooler sits atop that layer of dense foam, and there is another layer of dense foam used as a spacer at the top of the cooler. Yet another piece of dense foam is glued to the top of the spacer, so the spacer stays at the top of the cooler.
The hardware box can be found above that, and the manual rests on top like a cherry on a sundae. The packaging is pretty basic as far as all around protection goes, but it is effective, as our Himalaya II arrived in great condition.
