The Zalman FX100 (Cont’d)
Figure 8 shows the base of the cooler. It is a nickel-plated copper plate with mirrored finishing.
Removing the top cap, you can obtain a better idea of how the FX100 is made; there are four heatsinks at the sides, and two smaller heatsinks at the center. The optional fan goes between the inner heatsinks.
Figure 10 unveils the FX100 without the plastic corners. Here you can see the six heatpipes that surround the cooler. Those heatpipes are soldered to the heatpipes that come from the base.
