PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The V-Power unit is fairly large and features some red plastic shrouding to direct the airflow from the 90mm cooling fan.



A sticker protects the copper base and the heatpipes are flattened somewhat to maximize heat transfer in the GPU area. We can also see the aluminum fins and the four mounting posts here, as well as the 3-pin fan power connector.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The base finish is not what you’d call mirror finished, but it is flat and has lots of contact area with the flattened ‘pipes. However, as can be seen in the photo, there is a significant amount of heatpipe surface that isn’t in contact with the base. We’ll see how this works a bit later, but I’m not very optimistic.



A full compliment of accessories is included with the V-Power. We’ll go over these in more detail during installation. Suffice it to say that there’s everything you need to mount the cooler on a supported card.
