Packaging & Contents

The box EKWB has shipped the Predator 240 in is rather large as it measures in at roughly 36 cm in length, 16.2 cm in width, and 27.6 cm in height. The box sports a modern design with black, white, and bronze colors. On the front is an image of the Predator 240, along with badges for its expandable nature and quiet operation and the fact that it's built with overclocked systems in mind. The right side lists the key benefits of water cooling, which include unparalleled cooling performance, great overclocking potential, and the increased lifespan of components, just to name a few. Meanwhile, the back details the cooler's features, such as its all-copper design and plug-and-play ease of use.

The top of the box just has the product name and a small bit of info, while the bottom lists the cooler's specifications and requirements and has a list of contents.


EK certainly knows how to package a cooler. The kit comes in a large box with two plastic trays that leave a great deal of space for any potential dings to be dispersed, thus offering solid protection for this high-end piece of hardware.

The Predator 240 comes nearly 100% fully assembled; when EK says plug-and-play they mean it. The fans are pre-mounted, wiring is carefully run, and all the extras are just the power cords, some thermal paste, and a few screws. Everything needed for modern Intel 115x and 2011 sockets is here. However, narrow ILM 2011 is not supported unless you purchase a separate kit. AMD users are also out in the cold for the time being as this version of the Predator series of AIOs is for Intel only.

Common parts supplied for mounting include:
  • 8x Fan screws
  • 8x Hex key rad screws
  • 4x Thumbscrews
  • 2x Vardar F4 120ER fans
  • 1x All-in-one liquid cooler
  • 1x Intel backplate
  • 1x Torx T20 key
  • 1x Installation guide
