Scythe Byakko SCBYK-1000 CPU Cooler Review (Page 2)

The front of the box is mostly black with a bright blue accent in the bottom-right corner. There is a large image of the Byakko, both names to the right of it, even an image of the white tiger we spoke of earlier.


Along with the tiger and product name, this side is used to deliver the specifications. There are five renderings of the cooler and the fan, all of them with dimensions found around them. The bottom is used for a multi-lingual chart explaining the overall dimensions as well as covering all aspects of the fan.


Around not to the back of the box, we find company information at the top along with websites to visit. The bright blue section explains the warranty outside of Japan, while the lower section is used for cautionary statements to read before installing or using this product.


On the last panel, we find mentions of MAPS, or the Multiple Airflow Pass-through System, the 130mm height, the narrow fin design, we are shown the mounting hardware, and lastly, has them addressed as ECMS or Easy Clip Mounting System.


Inside of the box, Scythe first drops in a layer of dense foam, and it is then that the cooler with the fan attached is set on top of it. To keep the cooler sandwiched in place, a cardboard insert is added, which also provides a place for the packet of TIM as well as the AMD mounting bar. Since this cooler is compact and light, it does not require much support. Just with what we see here, our Byakko arrived in perfect condition from halfway around the world.
