PRODUCT DETAIL



The Samurai Z is fairly attractive, and comes fully assembled, except for the platform-clip method. You can see where the clip simply slips into the two larger spaces, right under that good looking company logo on the side of the cooler.



Here you can see the heatpipes. Two separate heatpipes loop out from the copper plate at the bottom to the aluminum fins on top, and are conveniently placed directly under the the area in the fan with the highest air flow.



As you can see, the heatpipes are actually holding up the top cooler fin sections and the fan itself. Though this seems like a bit of a flimsy idea, the cooler itself feels quite solid, and the design actually supports the rest of the cooler quite well.



Really the only area where I'd love to see a little more refinement is the finish on the copper base of the cooler. In the picture, you can see the aluminum part of the base actually has a more burnished finish then the copper part.


PRODUCT INSTALLATION



The Samurai Z slipped into place on my Socket478 system, just by lining up the clips and settling it into place.
