PRODUCT COMPOSITION



Inside this very simple cardboard box, you receive:



This giant assortment of brackets for every different type of CPU this monster cooler can be utilized with. Everything from an AMD Duron to a Socket 775 Dual Core CPU is covered making this a extremely useful investment in case of future upgrades.



All the screws required for the installation of the heatsink, as well as sealed packet of thermal paste. I will be using Cooler Master HTK-002 on both CPUs, to keep an even playing field using a common agent that I know works well.



Here comes the large heatpipe based heatsink itself, something this big and monstrous deserves the name of a ninja’s weapon. Even with it’s size it is extremely light as Scythe has said, weighing in at only 300 grams. When you have a heatsink that is not mounted directly onto the processor, keep weight down is crucial to stop socket damaging stresses from occuring.
