Packaging and Accessories
Bitspower shipped this directly from their base of operations in Taiwan along with a few other items, so we begin with the product packaging. It is quite small, and one reason I knew its days were numbered. Recent Bitspower products have generally come in larger, grander packaging. I have no issues with it, however, since it does the job just fine. We see Bitspower branding plastered all over, and there is a QR code that leads you to an online guide that is lacking in details. Again, this is excusable if the product is very easy to use, which we will get to in due time. There is a double flap keeping the box closed, and opening it reveals a lot of soft foam all around the pump for further protection in transit.
There's not much to see inside beyond the pump since Bitspower actually has it pre-installed with the mounting brackets and good to go. Off to the side, we see a plastic pouch that contains a spare O-ring and a rubber mounting bracket. I have always appreciated Bitspower including spare O-rings with water blocks, and seeing that tradition held on to here is nice. The rubber bracket is a base of sorts with the unit on the bottom of your case and dampens vibrations moving in either direction.
