The fans arrived with an Enermax Chakra case (to be featured in a review soon). Not your standard packaging, but they were protected by that cardboard box and arrived safely. The actual fan package itself provides a good overview of the fan, with a nice transparent window to see the actual fan. On the front it lists some basic features that should appeal to just about everyone; lower noise, longer life, easy cleaning. On the back side it shows the 7 fan blades removed from the chassis and explains what 'enlobal' is all about with a colored diagram.
