The Frio OCK comes in a very colorful package, which has a spacey feel. The background of the front is what appears to be a view of the earth with the space behind it and a picture of the Frio OCK in the foreground.  The packaging follows the typical design and packaging material that all Thermaltake CPU coolers come in; a fancy front, informative back both in black, with other sides being white and the topmost having the product name.
