Cooler Master has put a picture of the CPU cooler on the front and the right side so that the user can get a good idea about the cooler. Additionally, the dimension along with the illustrations are given at the back to give a good idea of how big this CPU cooler is. The specification is mentioned towards the left.

The mounting system is kept inside a box while the CPU cooler is resting on a three-sided foam with the fan facing towards the open side.

Cooler Master provides all the mounting required for Intel LGA 775, 115x, LGA 2011/2011-V3 and AMD platforms. Cooler Master bundled this LGA 115x/AMD combo backplate where you can switch sides depending on which mounting holes you’re using. I do wish that the backplate was of Intel platform only since usually AMD motherboards have a backplate by default. Certain mini-ITX motherboards may have some obstruction which would block it from being installed.

Additionally, Cooler Master provides a small syringe of thermal paste, making it as a complete package.

The specification of the CPU cooler are as follows:
