PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The VertiCool III will definitely have a presence in a computer case. Four heatpipes and 52 fins stacked up on top of the socket is bound to look impressive.



From the side, we can see that there are two banks of fins with the 92mm fan sandwiched between them. We can also see that the aluminum shroud is slightly bent (top left.) I don't see how this can affect performance, but it's a little disturbing. The 3-pin fantail is nicely sleeved with a white mesh material, secured with black heatshrink tubing. An aluminum shroud attaches the fan to the cooler…


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


…and the fan is secured with rubber mounts that Spire assures us will keep noise to a minimum. Frankly, with the fan and shroud in direct contact, I see little value in the rubber connector, but we'll see.



Two backplates and three sets of installation clips, 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 will be used for AMD K8 applications.



The four heatpipes are clamped and soldered to the base and should provide good heat transfer.
