Introduction (Cont’d)

In Figure 6 we can notice that the heatpipes are well distributed on the heatsink and very close to each other at the base.

From the top we can see the frame where the fan must be screwed to. There is no kind of anti-vibration system between the heatsink and the fan.

The base is made of copper and it is very smooth, but with no mirror finishing, as you can check in Figure 8.

On our benchmarking we used an FM123 fan, also made by SilverStone, but you can use almost any 120 mm fan with this cooler.

This fan comes with an amazing controller, with a potentiometer installed on a bracket to be installed on any expansion slot from the case. Its maximum rotation is 2600 rpm, a very high number for a 120 mm fan. Its airflow is also high, reaching 106.3 cfm.
