PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
As you can see, the Fourier IV has an unusual configuration. The fan sits below the fins and directs its airflow upwards through the fins and ‘pipes. The undulating top surface gives it a pleasing, organic look that will add some nice contrast to the rest of the components in a computer case.
The fan is held in place by two wire clips making it easy to remove, should the user want to change fans or remove the fan altogether and use the cooler in passive mode. The fantail is sleeved in a white mesh material and terminates in a standard 3-pin connector.
With the fan removed, you can easily see the fairly wide fin spacing and the relieved area where the fan hub would be located. Threaded holes in the corners of the base accept screws for the various mounting brackets.
Don't forget to remove the protective plastic sheet before installation! You'll be very disappointed with the Fourier's performance if you do.
