    They look very nice but at the end of the day it's just a box. Also I think most people who buys these CPU's will save a few quid and just get the OEM versions without any of the extravagant packaging.

    The extra warranty on the CPU's (3 years vs 1) sometimes makes that extra packaging worth it When I built an Intel i3 for my parents, the stock Intel cooler was also fine for them and worth the few quid extra over the OEM cpu-only.
