Noctua maintains the same type of packaging as they did for a very long time. NH-U9S is not an exception.

The inner packaging is pretty sweet. The CPU cooler is practically wrapped in a thick enough cardboard to ensure that the CPU cooler is not damaged in any way. Also, Noctua provides a protection cap for the heatbase and has its NF-A9 PWM fan pre-installed. In another kit, there’s a single box for both AMD and Intel socket installation kits, called as Secufirm2. The box has separate bracket kits for AMD, Intel and also common parts like the Low Noise Adapter, NT-H1 Thermal Paste (the entire syringe as they would give it in retail), second set of clips for NF-A9 (should you purchase one later) and a metal case badge!

Everyone should give a metal case badge!!
