Packaging and Contents
The front of the GAMING ARCTIC box is, appropriately, a white background with the MSI B360 GAMING ARCTIC name in the center against a white graphic. The MSI logo is prominently placed in the top-left corner, with the Intel logos in the top right. At the bottom is the "Performance Gaming" logo on the left and "MYSTIC LIGHT" logo on the right.
The back of the box keeps the white backdrop and features the GAMING ARCTIC name, and has more Intel logos along the top. Under that is a top down shot of the board with some key features highlighted. Left of the board's picture is a more comprehensive list of included features. Along the bottom of the box is a specifications list on the left and a diagram of the rear IO on the right.
The MSI B360 GAMING ARCTIC box follows the now familiar formula that gives you a feel for the tone of the board with the graphics and provides crucial specs in a concise and easily distinguishable manner. MSI had done an excellent job of it.
Opening the box reveals the board in an anti-static bag as well as a nice "True Gaming" logo. The accessories are all hidden underneath the board.
The accessories included with the MSI B360 GAMING ARCTIC are pretty standard. I did notice that the rear I/O cover plate is printed black with a red graphic. I always like to see manufacturers paying attention to small details, but given the MSI B360 GAMING ARCTIC colors, plain silver would have been acceptable. The full list of accessories includes:
- Manual and support DVD
- 1x Registration card
- 1x Rear I/O cover
- 2x SATA 6 GB/s cables
- 1x M.2 mounting screw
