The MSI Core Frozr XL ships in a dark box with a large product photo on the front.
Inside, all of the installation hardware comes immaculately presented in a padded box – I love this as it creates an excellent first impression and oozes class.
The only other included accessory is the small paper manual.
The cooler itself is a very chunky unit, measuring 150.4 mm x 170.0 mm x 129.8 mm (DxHxW) with both fans attached – which, incidentally, is how it comes out-of-the-box. The fans do attach using two clips on either side, though, so it is easy to remove one or both units.
The fans also sport some red plastic housing, giving the cooler its red-and-black colour scheme, an MSI classic.
At the base of the cooler we get a look at the 8x 6mm-thick nickel-plated heatpipes – which is some serious cooling power.
It also worth mentioning that the cooler uses a standard 4-pin PWM cable for its two fans (a splitter cable is included), but if you want to utilise the RGB lighting you will need a spare USB header on your motherboard.
