While not gargantuan, the BTF95 is pretty large. Listed at 510 grams, it's also relatively lightweight. Four looped heatpipes and 62 copper fins with a total of over 450 square inches should provide adequate cooling. Wide compatibility is always a plus, and the BTF95 supports the latest sockets, as well as some older AMD offerings. Intel P4 users with older sockets will have to look elsewhere.
The silver cardboard box is attractive and a window gives us just a glimpse of what's inside.
Inside the box is a plastic clamshell containing the cooler and a cardboard box that holds the mounting solutions and manual.
The multi-language manual is printed on glossy stock with plenty of illustrations.
