PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The Killer Whale has to be one of my favorite looking coolers and has a very eye catching design. The heatsink has a top-down configuration, six heatpipes connected to a copper base and a total of 55 aluminum fins. All of this is cooled by its unique 120mm fan.




One of the more important parts of any heatsink is the base of the cooler. Now, it's not the most reflective base but that is not always a deciding factor. I have tested coolers sporting mirror like bases and even then the results were sub-par to that of, say, a semi mirror like base. For the Killer Whale, DEEPCOOL went a head and used a nickel-plated solid 9mm thick copper base for conducting heat away from the processor and into the heatpipes.




Like I said before, this cooler is large and stands 143mm tall and uses six 6mm copper heat pipes for heat transfer. They are paired in two groups with 3 heatpipes for each set, spaced 7mm apart which should put each bank in the fan's airflow sweet spot.
