Opting for a clean white backdrop, NZXT displays an illuminated image of the X73 in the center. Above it, we get the name of the cooler in bold black lettering, but the fine print is harder to read displayed in gray like that. However, the points were made. Here is the name, here is what it looks like. Turn the box to know more!
Doing just that, turning the box, we run into three versions of the specifications in multiple languages. Everything we covered earlier in the specifications is here, no shortcuts taken, you know exactly what you are getting!
On the back of the packaging, NZXT delivers four sections of information to look at. The first is about performance, covering the CAM control of the HUE 2 outbound lead, use of the seventh generation of Asetek coolers, and a bigger and brighter LED ring. Two of the following sections repeat this information while the last one touches on CAM software. If you desired to see what the cooler would look like installed into your chassis, they show that with the image to the right.
In eleven languages NZXT drops a features list on this end of the box. Things we haven't seen yet or already covered include the improved sync of the NZXT RGB accessories, NZXT CAM controlled pump and lighting controls, and that it is easy to install since the tubes are so long. The bottom covers requirements, which are Windows 10 and a free USB 2.0 port on your motherboard.
The inner packaging keeps all of the components from touching each other in transit, and the recycled cardboard has done a great job of that. We also like the secondary protective layers ensuring the cooler arrives in the best shape possible, which this has.
