AMD’s Ryzen boxes all look pretty similar, the Ryzen logo takes up most of the front of the box. The bottom right corner carries a single number to denote the family, 3, 7 or in this case, a 5.

The right side of the box has a window that shows the Ryzen 5 2600 in the center of a large red circle.

The rear of the box is a plain dark grey, but the security seal and product label overlap onto it to tell you exactly what model you have.

The heatsink is entirely aluminum compared to the Wraith Spire that has a copper core. A pre-applied patch of thermal material makes this ready to go out of the box.
