The ASUS Rampage Formula arrives in a sturdy box with a grey theme, that extends from the front to the rear of the box.
The front of the box showcases a couple smaller graphics, which indicates the presence of the Pin-Fin chipset cooling solution, and a full version of STALKER.
The back of the box lists the majority of the features that were showcased in the features and specifications section.
The box breaks down further into two more subdivisions, a clear plastic one for the motherboard, and a cardboard one for the accessory bundle.
Overall the packaging is sturdy, and should insure the product arrives to you in good shape.
