PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The Contac 29 cooler is made up of a large array of fins which seem to be a bit to thin seeing as how even the slightest mishandle would result in a slightly damaged heatsink. There seems to be a good balanced portion of space area between each fin which will hopefully help with airflow in the testing phase of this review.
Accompanying the fins are three 8mm copper heatpipes that come into direct contact with the processors IHS. This cooling solution has been proven to be capable of handling serious heat and dissipating it in a much more efficient manner. We have seen coolers from Xigmatek and even OCZ use this type of cooling, and Thermaltake is aiming at the same success these companies have accomplished with this similar design.
The top fin is labeled with the “TT” logo and by looking at the sides and design of the fins, you can tell this cooler can accommodate up to two 120mm fans using a four set of anti-vibration mounts.
