PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
As you can see from the chart, the DuOrb supports all the modern sockets and processors. Six copper heatpipes and numerous copper/aluminum fins are cooled by a couple of 80mm LED fans with a modest sound footprint.
Inside the attractive and informative packaging there are the cooler, mounting solutions and instruction booklet. There are a lot of small parts associated with mounting the DuOrb, and the motherboard will need to be outside the case for both Intel and AMD platforms. I'm a little surprised to find that Thermaltake hasn't included a backplate for the Intel boards. The cooler isn't overly tall, but it still exceeds the reference cooler weight (450 grams) by a good margin.
