The packaging is bold yet simple, using an image of the cooler to take up most of the space, illuminated to show the logo and infinity mirror. Other than that, on the while backdrop, is the Kraken X53 name in bold black letters, with muted gray text explaining what it is.
Spinning the box to the left shows us the right side of the box. On the blueish-purple colored side, we see the specifications we discussed earlier, delivered in three languages.
The back of the box is where NZXT takes the time to drop information on its features. First mentioned is the high-performance cooling and stunning RGB. We then see there is better control with CAM for HUE components via a lead controlled by the pump.
They go as far as to say incredible performance due to the seventh-gen Asetek unit, and that it is bigger and brighter with a ten percent increase in size to the LED ring in the rotatable top. After repeating all of that two more times, we also see a small view into the CAM software, while the right of the panel shows how the X53 looks inside of a chassis.
In multiple languages, NZXT uses this last panel spelling out some of the features. Mentions of pump orientation no longer mattering as you turn the logo to match now. We hit on the HUE @ connector, which essentially turns the head unit into an RGB hub. NZXT mention improved synchronization of lighting modes, CAM controlled pump and LED control and easier installation due to the use of 400mm tubes.
What we found inside of the box is what we find most AIOs packed in, recycled cardboard, which compartmentalizes all of the individual parts. All of the bits are protected again with cardboard over the radiator and plastic around everything else. Aside from the amount of static from all of the plastic, and the dust that sticks to it from that, our X53 got to us in perfect shape!
