The cooler comes assembled with the provided fan attached.
The base comes with a protective sticker.
The base isn’t very reflective, since this is an HDT (Heatpipe direct touch) style cooler, a highly reflective base isn’t expected. It does however appear to be flat and smooth which is much more important.
The cooler uses four 6mm Heatpipes which come in direct contact and are arranged away from each other.
The ends of the heat pipes are left uncovered.
Here’s a comparison to the TX3, the smaller version of this heatsink.
