Thermaltake's carton for the 400 cooler is rather compact with colorful graphics and all the pertinent information a consumer is likely to want,…

Documentation includes an installation guide, warranty information sheet and the ubiquitous Thermaltake “Key 3” flyer and sticker. The cooler and fan are supplemented by a large bag of mounting hardware, an AMD backplate and clips to secure the fan to the cooler.
