The overall bundle contains everything you should need and then some, contained in two boxes inside the main package - The first is foam packed and contains the main cooling unit, bottle of cooler and replacement face plate to replace the LCD unit in the cooling unit in case you wish to mount this internally). The second contains the rest of the necessary goodies, all packed loosely.
