PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



This photo illustrates just how large the GeminII actually is, compared to a 120 X 25mm fan. The fin design incorporates a hexagonal cutout mimicking the Cooler Master logo, and we can see that this is a true six-heatpipe cooler. The wave design of the outboard fins assure good heat dissipation from the ‘pipes without too much resistance to airflow.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The copper base has a dead-flat surface, protected by a plastic sheet. Remember to remove this sheet, or you'll be very disappointed in the cooling performance. The fan rails allow two 120mm fans to be attached to the GeminII and the slots allow for adjustment along the long axis.



This graphic illustrates how the fans not only act to cool the processor, but also direct airflow to various other components. Motherboards with passive heatsinks could benefit greatly from this design.



Here's a shot of the GeminII with the AMD bracket installed and ready for mounting on a Socket 939 board. Notice the four screws that secure the bracket to the base and the reflective finish on the copper base itself.
