In black packaging with a simple gray bar across the bottom, an image of the True Spirit 140 Direct takes center stage. The name of the cooler is presented in orange and red letters, while the Thermalright logo is white and green, and company name just in white.
The next panel shows the cooler name and the tagline "innovated – not imitated" at the top. The bulk of this panel is used to present the PWM, easy mounting, low noise, heat pipes configuration, compatibility, clearances, and that it ships with high-end thermal grease, as its feature set.
The back of the box is bright red and is where the specifications chart is offered to those who might be buying this off of a shelf in a big box store. There is also some iconography, the company name, and website address, and that it was made in Taiwan offered in the lower section.
The last panel on the packaging shows the product name and tagline across the top, but this is used primarily to afford a good view of the base design in the True Spirit 140 Direct. With the heat pipes being exposed and making contact with the CPU, it is where the Direct in the coolers name derives.
Found inside of the box is this sandwich of parts and goodies. The TY-140 fan rests on one side of the tower, separated by a layer of dense foam. This foam surrounds the tower to protect it, and on the other side of the foam is a box of hardware. We do also find a manual slid down one side of the box and is in easy reach to look it over before opening things up and getting ahead of yourself. This may be a simple way to ship a cooler, but the protection afforded from both the box and the dense foam, our True Spirit 140 Direct showed in impeccable condition.
