Thermalright bags and seals everything prior to delivery to ensure that once all counted and bagged, there is no way to lose any parts. Opening one of the larger bags offers us the four wire fan clips to support two fans, the Intel backplate and isolation layer, and the top mounting hardware bracket.




Here we have the plate that mounts the cooler to that top bracket in the last image, and a packet of Chill Factor paste to use. To the right, we have the standoffs for normal use at the top, the LGA2011 hardware below it, and as to the screws, the long ones go through the motherboard, and the shorter ones mount the cooler and top brackets.




There are two sets of nylon washers, a smaller set of four for Intel, and for AMD use, you opt to the larger set of four. There are also two sheets of fan isolation material that is pre-cut and ready to be installed, and they even include an LGA775 preload spacer.




Here is the fan that they have included to cool this tower. This is a 140mm fan that uses a slightly rectangular layout of the frame where it is wider than it is tall. Giving the BW its context in the cooler naming, the fan is black and white, and while powered via a 4-pin PWM connection, the lead is also sleeved to hide the colored wires inside of it.




The manual is enough to get someone through the installation, but is not very specific in its guidance. There are specific sections for each installation types, but essentially you get a single exploded diagram to go from, with steps listed below to point you to where you need to go next.
