This huge heatsink that weights around half a kilogram, has a very solid finish.

The six heatpipes transfer the heat from the base into the two heatsinks.

It’s not particularly thick, about 44mm in total, but still takes more than two slots when mounted.

This cooler comes supplied with an abundant amount of material. Soon I found out all this material is used to secure the mount to the card, the mount to the case, the heatsinks to the card and allow for many different mounting positions so the cooler is ready for a wide range of modern graphic cards.

An interesting part to unpack whilst giving this cooler a first look is this bracket. At first I didn’t understand what it is good for, until I realized that it’s supposed to hold up to four (!) fans, and be mounted separately, consuming another two/three slots with the fans on it.

The supplied fans have a nice colour scheme and feel very solid. Not at all like typical cheap plastic fans, they’re quite heavy too, around 200gr a piece. The PWM-connector allows for voltage regulation when applied to a 4-pin fan controller.

The fans come supplied with four noise dampening rubber mounting pins, a male-MOLEX to male-MOLEX plus 7V connector extension cable and a 3-pin extension cable.
