ID-Cooling delivered the ZOOMFLOW 240 in this matte-finished black box, where the image of the cooler in the middle, and the icons for compatible RGB support at the top pop off the backdrop. We also notice that on the top of the box, ID-Cooling lists ARGB, synchronous motherboard support, premium sleeved tubing, and a high-performance pump are sure to be pointed out on the first panel you will see.

The next panel we are showing covers four main features found in the ZOOMFLOW 240. The first is the inclusion of ARGB LED lighting in both the fans and the head unit, to allow one to build a colorful system. The second one listed covers the pump and how the copper plate and flow rate help to improve performance. Nylon braided cloth covers the tubing and is said to be there for both style and enhancing durability. The last image is to denote the "massive" radiator that delivers the "best" performance while using lower fan speeds to maintain low noise levels.

Both of the smaller ends of the packaging are nearly identical. Both have the company name and product name, but where the RGB compatibility and ARGB notifications are, on the opposite end, they are replaced with UPC and serial number stockers.

The other longer side of the box, while sporting the name of the cooler at the top, is used to deliver visual measurements of the cooler. The first rendering on the left is a view of the cooler in its entirety, but the flowing renderings show the width of the radiator and height of the head unit in the middle one, and the one on the right covers the thickness and length of the radiator as well as the width and depth of the head unit.

The bottom of the box, or the back if you want to call it that, is used for specifications, compatibility, as well as company information. The specs are condensed versus what we saw earlier, but a lot of what you need to know is there, but the compatibility chart is identical to what we previously discussed. The bottom-right corner is where we see the name of the company, as well as the site and support addresses, tells us who made it, where, and even offers a phone number to make contact.

After opening the box, removing the instructions and a thin layer of open-cell foam, we can see how well the ZOOMFLOW 240 is packaged for safe transit. Not only are all of the components compartmentalized, but they either are also wrapped in plastic or packed inside of cardboard boxes, while resting inside of the recycled cardboard inner packaging. In this instance, we could find no visual flaws or damages from shipping, as the ID-Cooling ZOOMFLOW 240 came out of the box with nothing more than a fair amount of dust to clean off of it to make it presentable.

After a year of gaming, Chad caught the OC bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and Chad has had many air and water setups. With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
