On the front of the packaging, we find the Cooler Master logo at the top with the tagline of "make it yours." The majority of the panel is taken up with an image of the top of the cooler with the MasterAir Maker 8 naming off to its left. Near the bottom we see a mention of the 3DVC and that this cooler has unique customization options.
As we spin the box, we run into this panel. The larger image shows the cooler so that you can see the 3DVC and the pipes, along with the 140mm fan and shroud that it uses. Along the bottom, we see the top of the cooler as shipped to the left, and to the right we see it with the optional steel cover plate replacing the tinted plastic one.
On the back is where we find an exploded diagram that shows all of the components that go into this design. At the top of this image you can see the cover plate is removable allowing users to expose the metal cap inserted around the pipes, and even then this plate is removable to reveal the top fin and heat pipes in a more typical aesthetic.
The last panel offers the specifications chart we copied for the last page and also provides three-dimensional renderings of the cooler to gauge its size before purchasing it. We do wish that they had provided the space from the base of the cooler to the bottom of the shroud, though, as this will likely be the bane of most users.
Inside of this very large box, we find the cooler standing in the back with a plastic cover to protect the top of the cooler. In the front, we can see three boxes, one for the manual and accessories, another for the optional 120mm fan brackets, and the last one containing the steel top plate.
