The Thermaltake ISGC-300 follows the same pattern of packaging as the ISGC-100 and ISGC-200. An image of the cooler sits below the ISGC-300 name, above the ISGC acronym explanation and features and to the left of Zoe, Goddess of Victory. The sides go into the more detailed specifications and features while the back covers some of the core components of the ISGC Fan.
The cooler is nicely packed inside the cardboard box. Trying to get it, as well as the parts, can be somewhat annoying; the box unfolds on itself. Hiding inside the box are all the components needed for installation.
