PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH


 

The heatpipes are clamped onto the heatsink and then soldered for maximum heat transfer.



While the base doesn't have the highly polished finish seen on some other coolers, it's flat and the old fingernail test doesn't reveal any glaring imperfections; a small amount of the included thermal paste should provide good heat transfer.



The fan is a translucent blue version of one of Spire's stock items, manufactured by Fanner Tech.



The included fan controller mounts in available expansion slot. The cabling is sleeved in a clear plastic material and has male and female 3-pin connectors to supply power from a motherboard header, through the controller to the fan. The polished aluminum knob and chrome plate give this unit a nice look, and an arrow lets the user know which way to turn the knob.



Two backplates and three sets of installation brackets, with screws, comprise the mounting system for the supported sockets. The top components are for Intel socket 775 and 478 use, while the bottom items are for AMD K8 applications.
