The packaging for the NH-L9x65 shares the same white trim and black and dark brown design that all Noctua coolers have. Given that this is a taller version of the L9i I was a little surprised at how much bigger the packaging was, the L9i’s box is almost a 1/3rd of the size of this box. On the front we have the product name up the left side and on the top. Below the name they describe the cooler as an L Type low profile cooler, this is especially nice if you are looking at multiple Noctua coolers next to each other because you can tell quickly what sets each apart. Then down below are a few of the coolers features. Over on the side they also included a full specification listing for the heatsink as well as the fan. Next to the specifications there is also a very small line drawing of the cooler with all of the dimensions on it as well.
Inside the box we first have the accessories box right on top. Then below that the heatsink is held into place with cardboard all around it.
Inside the accessories box you first get three small fold out instruction manuals depending on if you are planning on installing the NH-L9x65 into an AMD build, Intel socket 2011, or Intel Socket LGA115x. Under that the box is divided up into three sections. One is for Intel, the one next to it AMD, and then along the bottom is the shares section. Each bog is labeled to prevent any mixups as well. The shared bag comes with an all metal (and badass) case badge, a Low Noise Adapter for the fan, a screwdriver, and a full stick of thermal paste. The Intel kit comes with the parts for 2011 as well as 115x all in one bag with the exception of the one piece SecuFirm backplate for the 115x builds. The backplate has changed slightly from the last time I tested a Noctua cooler and that is designated with a Revision 2 stamp.
