For a high-end product, the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe comes in a rather small, but very black box, like the rest of the regular ASUS brand boards. The front has very little going on; the board's name stands out in green and white lettering on one side, with just a few technology logos across the bottom. There is also a very large "Digi-Power Control" logo in the upper right corner just under a "PCIe 3.0 Ready" banner that hints at future upgrade options. The back of the box has far more going on, but really, there's just a picture of the board with some specification listings, and then several breakdowns of what ASUS-specific features the P9X79 Deluxe contains.
Lifting the flap on the front of the box reveals a few more feature descriptions, as well as the board itself, via a fairly large window.
Upon opening the box itself, we find ourselves looking at the board right on top, nestled in its own protective cardboard tray. Lifting the board's tray out, we find the included accessories below, contained within separate compartments made from a cardboard divider that helps ensure the huge amount of goodies makes it to your door intact.
As mentioned, there's quite a bit of accessories hidden inside the P9X79 Deluxe box. We finally get cables for every SATA port, and the added Bluetooth/Wi-Fi card is a nice touch, although we have found quite a few Intel X79-based products to include something similar. A full listing is below :
