The sample I was sent is designed for use with Intel socket LGA 775 CPUs although an AMD version should also be available.
The packaging looks like it will be the same as what you will see on the shelves when the product is released. Unlike most prerelease samples I receive the Dual Contact Hybrid Base CPU cooler was packaged in a professional looking box complete with graphics and product details.
Inside the box you will receive the following. The cooler itself wrapped in a bubble wrap bag, some thermal compound, a fan controller and a case badge. The inclusion of the case badge tells me one thing, Nanoxia are not playing around. They want to make their name mean something; enough that people would be proud to display that they use Nanoxia products. Lets move on and see how they are doing.
