PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The cooler itself is all-copper and has the trademark butterfly shape of some other ZEROtherm coolers we've seen.



The 62 fins (31 on each side) are spaced to take advantage of convection and the limited airflow one is likely to see inside a PC case.



ZEROtherm calls their cooling scheme an “eight-line heat pipe effect.” It's really four ‘pipes looped through the copper fins and soldered to the base. The plastic sheet covers…



…the highly polished copper base. The mounting solutions are attached via the four threaded holes, as we'll see a bit later.



Speaking of which, the mounting solutions are elegant in their simplicity and a tube of ZEROtherm's excellent thermal compound is included.

 

PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING



I really like the mounting solutions provided with the BTF95. The AMD clip fits all brackets from Socket 754 to AM2 and is very easy to install and mount. Installation could be accomplished without removing the motherboard, in most cases. The manual has very clear instructions for getting this done properly.
