The packaging for the XP-90C is the same as the traditional Thermalright packaging, consisting of a plain cardboard box with foam inserts and smaller boxes with the accessories.

Included with the kit are the standard retention module, the LGA775 mounting hardware (the LGA775 RM, backplate, insulating plastic sheet and a set of screws), two sets of fan clips (one for 80mm fans and one for 92mm fans), two longer screws for the standard RM, two silicon strips, and a tube of thermal paste. Thermalright also includes a printed installation guide and a large sticker that you can add to your case and show off your brand loyalty.
