AXLE GT 430 Retail Packaging
The front of the AXLE GT 430 box shows a similar graphic to what is seen on their website and other products. It is different than the box they show for this product on their website but things can change without notice and it is not a big issue. One thing that is advertised is the “Solid State Capacitors” that have a >500,000 hour life expectancy.
The back of the box is a bit plain other than the three shots of games to promote the different technologies the 400 series is known to support. On the right are just the features and requirements for the AXLE GeForce GT 430.
Opening the box I see the foldout manual that holds the driver disc along with a yellow card with notes on the video card installation. Not a big bundle, but for less than $100 you can’t really ask for much, anyway. What you do get are the essentials: the driver disc and the instructions. All that is needed. The yellow card has suggestions such as "Pay attention to abnormal noise from the fan" and "ensure fan rotates freely after card installation" among other things for proper operation. Those suggestions are in six languages as well.
Here we get a view of the AXLE GeForce GT430 inside the static bag it is packaged in.
The install CD includes drivers for each 32-bit and 64-bit Operating System from Windows 2000 up to Windows 7. No Linux love here.
Since AXLE is a Chinese company that shipped Legit Reviews the video card, all you will see on the CD are the “international” drivers. If someone from North America happened to get one of these you can just download the English drivers off of Nvidia.com.
