On the front of the box, things are kept very simple. There is just a black and white background with a large image of the cooler taking up all of the room, and the illumination is on in the head unit. Outside of the notation informing us this is the world's first variable speed AIO, it also has the white six in the corner to denote the warranty.
To the right we find this smaller side panel offers a compatibility list at the top, so you can be sure it will fit. That is followed by a depiction of the difference in surface area of a 280mm radiator to a 240mm one, and concludes with a comparison chart of this cooler against other, standard versions.
To the left are icons denoting five key features. There is another notation regarding the 36% more area, and an indication of the Kraken X61 being variable speed, with another image of the X61 to the right. Below, we see an image of the CAM software, with more features and inclusions listed to the right.
Our second end panel displays a specifications chart that is much easier to read and understand than what we are given online. Here, everything is broken into the appropriate section, making each component's specifications much easier to absorb.
While we cannot actually read much of anything on this panel, it does show that these coolers should be worldwide any time now, considering they took the time to list the included bits and features in so many languages.
As with any Asetek OEM AIO, we see it is shipped in a compartmentalized cardboard inner packaging. This keeps all the bits from rubbing together or damaging each other in transit, and allowed our sample of the Kraken X61 to arrive in fantastic shape.
