2. Retail Package
Thermalright is famous for fitting a lot of components into small boxes. The Thermalright packaging is no exception. Although there is no fancy packaging, only a hard papered box with the Thermalright logo on it, inside the box you will find everything that you will need to easily install the fan and the cooler on K8 and 745 based systems. You will have the white thermal compound to apply on the CPU, 2 sets of retention clips for 80mm or 92mm fans, the retention bracket for Intel and AMD based systems and of course all the screws required.
There is also a quick installation guide, with detailed pictures to help even novice users install the cooler.
All the components are seated in packaging foam to absorb vibrations that might damage the cooler or bend the copper fins.
Unfortunately, there is no LGA775 retention bracket in the box, but as already mentioned, you can always get one separately for around US$5.00.
