The CPU

The box and packaging as the exact same as the higher-end CPUs we reviewed before. We will probably see many people mod these cool cases.

Each CPU sits in a customized tray, and the accessories are located in a small storage box.

Accessories include a Torx wrench, AIO mounting bracket, manual with a sticker, larger sticker, and a warning to use Ryzen-2000 compatible motherboards/BIOS.

The top of the CPU is much like every other Ryzen ThreadRipper, and the CPU has its own holder.

On the bottom of the CPU, we can spot the golden pads, and we can see that the 2970WX has more SMDs soldered on the rear of the CPU.
