PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)



The fan/shroud unit is easily removed to reveal the dual fin arrays of the cooler, and may prove to be a valuable installation aid.




The fins are relatively widely spaced along the ‘pipes, which would normally allow the use of lower speed/lower pressure fans, but Thermaltake has clearly taken another tack here.



While the base lacks the mirror polished surface we see on some coolers, the base is dead flat and should prove to be more than adequate for the tasks at hand. The six, 6mm ‘pipes exit the base and immediately start their upward path to the fin array, providing as much clearance around the socket as possible, and four anchor points for the mounting solutions are provided in the heavy aluminum top plate.



The mounting solution features a common backplate for both Intel and AMD platforms and various mounting clips can be installed to support whichever socket you need. Installation instructions are straightforward and well documented in the manuals provided with the Frio OCK. Thermaltake also provides a small syringe of thermal compound, but as always, we’ll be using Arctic Silver 5 for consistency.


That about does it for the walkaround, and I’m excited to get the OCK installed and see how it performs, so let’s get to it.
