Packaging

The GeminII S524 came in the usual maroon and white Cooler Master box.  On the front we can see a picture of the cooler, on the back some features in various languages, and on the side a list of the specifications.

Opening up the box the cooler came well packed in foam with both AMD and Intel mounting hardware and instructions.

 Taking a look at the cooler itself you can clearly see the odd shape.  It naturally doesn’t balance well on the base, which we will touch on again during the installation.  The base itself is electroplated copper with a semi-shine to it.  Some will argue that the base needs to be perfectly smooth, though I advocate a slight texture to a base.  In the final picture you can see the cooler propped up with a bottle of thermal paste remover.  As you can see that 47mm clearance does give a fair amount of overhang.  In the instructions it shows that different configurations are possible, but the majority of the time I see users hanging this over RAM slots.
