The new Black Series Genesis, apart from its matte-black anodised aluminum fins, is identical to the original, launched back in February, 2011. It is a large category CPU heatsink, which uses a dual aluminum fin tower design, except that while one of its fin towers is arranged perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard (like most tower-type heatsinks), the other one is arranged parallel to that plane (like most top-flow heatsinks).

At its base, six nickel-plated copper heat pipes make indirect contact with the CPU. The six then convey heat to each of the two aluminum fin towers, where under the air-flow of 120 mm or 140 mm fans, heat is dissipated. The perpendicular tower focuses on cooling the CPU, with most of its exhaust making its way out of the case, while the parallel tower could end up cooling other components on the motherboard such as memory and VRM, under its air-flow.

The Black Series Genesis supports a full range of CPU socket types, including LGA2011, LGA1155/LGA1156, LGA1366, LGA775; AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2, FM2/FM1; although you should ensure your case and motherboard have just enough room for it. Apart from the heatsink itself, major parts of the mounting kit are black.
