Photos Part One: The Packaging
The front and rear have pretty pictures and marketing respectively. No surprise on that front. The languages of choice are an interesting combination and make the Designed in Europe line quite believable. I quite like the front of the box.
More specs, marketing and pretty pictures on the sides. Nothing we didn't see in the specifications page, other than the last line right above here. "High-purity nano diamond like particles". Diamond-like? To the best of my knowledge nothing is like diamond from the standpoint of thermal conductivity, at least nothing you want to be around. I however am not a geologist nor a thermodynamicist. I'll compare the stuff against the Arctic Aluminum Ceramic-2 that I generally use though. We'll see how diamond-like particles compare with aluminum oxide.
The top of the box is nice and simple and also shows you what color heatsink is in the box. In theory at least, I'll open it and see if it is correct.
Well hey, that looks mighty blue! I'll keep digging.
Still looks blue, very blue, without the foam. I like the packaging, everything looks well protected. How I'm supposed to get it out of the box I don't know. I eventually settled on dumping it out, inelegant perhaps but quite effective.
After some unwrapping this is what we have, two (cool looking!) fans, a very blue heatsink, a still closed box and some instructions.
