PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The FHE (I'm going to call it the waterblock from here on out) comes with the LGA 775 bracket attached, and a rubber band secures a protective plastic cover for…


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


…the base, with its pre-applied thermal compound. The base seems to be nickel-plated copper. If you look closely at the bracket, you'll see that there are two holes for the screws to accommodate either the 775 or 1366 backplate.


Tubing to and from the radiator unit is permanently attached to the fittings, making this a sealed, no-maintenance system and the tubes have a spiral feature to prevent kinking.




The Domino's LCD displays a variety of information from fan and pump speed to coolant temperature and operating mode. Changing modes (basically fan speed) is accomplished via the button indicated by the arrow in the above photo. Should something go wrong, the Domino will alert the user with a flashing icon on the display as well as an audible alarm.


Well, that's about it for this part of the review. Let's get on with the installation and see how this compact liquid cooling solution performs.
