3R System iCEAGE Prima Boss II (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

In Figure 8 we can see the 120 mm transparent fan with blue LEDs that comes with the cooler.

In Figure 9, you can see the cooler with the fan in place. Prima Boss II also comes with holders for a second fan (which does not come with the cooler).

In Figure 10 we can see a detail of the fan holders, which are made of soft rubber, helping to absorb noise and vibration. A detail we find strange is the fact the fan is a little bit bigger than the heatsink, making the holders to be only half inserted into the heatsink. So, if you do not take care while installing the cooler, the fan can get loose. If the heatsink were three or four fins taller, this problem would not occur.

In Figure 11 we can see the fan controller that comes with the cooler, which is intended to be installed in one of the rear slots from the computer case. It would be nicer if this controller could be installed on a 5 ¼" bay.
