PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)
The heatsink's base is not machined to a mirror finish, but it is perfectly flat and should [provide an excellent contact surface. This up-close shot also yields more detail to the cross pattern fins, another unique design of the V6000.
Here we have the pair of 92mm fans. The brightly colored fins are aesthetically pleasing to the eye but even more so is the touch. They feel of hardened rubber rather than hardened plastic typical of most commercial fans. This softer construction when installed on the heatsink will yield the least amount of vibrational noise.
Looking closely at the fan's blade it is noticeable of the small ribs along each fin. These ribs help the fan generate air smoothly and attribute to lowering the noise generated by turbulent airflow.
The small white box at the bottom of the package has been emptied and here are the necessary accessories. Deepcool has decided on going with fan clips to mount the fans rather than screws. A single application of thermal grease is provided along with the mounting screws and washers. The black ramsinks come in three varieties; a short square, a tall square, and a tall rectangle. Each is intended for use on a certain generation/manufacturer of videocard.
