Introduction (Cont’d)

Removing the fan we can see how the heatsink looks like, being smaller than the ones used on 120mm fan coolers obviously. The fan covers the entire heatsink. The heatpipes curves projects out a lot, which can cause some installation trouble if the heatpipes interfere with motherboard components.

The 92-mm fan has a classical frame, but the blades are white with an exclusive design. As you can see in Figure 7, its power connector is a four-pin miniature type, with PWM control pin, i.e., the motherboard controls the fan rotation speed.

In Figure 8, you can see the detail from the blad, which has a small recession that, according to Thermaltake, produces 15% more airflow and 3% less noise.

The base is made of copper, with a very smooth finishing. In Figure 9, you can see a screw reflected on the base. You can also see how three heatpipes can look as five.
