The Z390 Aorus Extreme Waterforce motherboard comes is a massive, and heavy box. This is due to the Monoblock being packaged with the motherboard, each in a separate box. The main box is simple. The Aorus falcon head logo is ion the center of the box, with the Z390 Aorus Extreme Waterforce branding printed below. It’s the same on the right and left sides of the box.
On the back of the box, there is the same falcon head Aorus logo, the Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce branding and two Intel badges across the top. These badges are the Z390 chipset and the Core 9th gen processor badges. Across the middle of the back, there are depictions of some of the main features of the board such as the 16 Phase IR Digital VRM, All-In-One Monoblock, and Aquantia 10 GbE LAN to name a few. Across the bottom of the back, there is a list of specifications of the Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce motherboard. Next to the specifications is a depiction of the I/O of the motherboard. The last thing of note is several badges for features of the motherboard. These include RGB Fusion, Smart Fan5, and Dual Bios to name a few.
Inside the very large box, there are two smaller boxes. The larger of the two holds the motherboard and the smaller box holds the All-In-One Monoblock. Also packed in with the Z390 Aorus Xtreme motherboard is the Aorus RGB Commander RGB controller.
Both the Z390 Aorus Extreme and the All-In-One Monoblock come packed in soft foam. This offers far better protection in shipping than hard foam or plastic. In fact, even the RGB Commander is packed in soft foam.
