The cooler sits inside a polyurethane foam insert. Above the cooler you can find a flat box with the following accessories:
Among them are: a retention kit for LGA775/1156/1366 mainboards, a retention kit for Socket AM2/AM3 mainboards, two special wrenches for these retention kits, Nexus thermal compound and an installation manual.
Nexus VCT-9000 is made in China and is sold at $50 MSRP. It comes with a three-year warranty.
