Here, we see the 6 heatpipes bent to contact the fins. Some manufacturers would lie and say there are 12 heatpipes but Scythe didn’t.
The base of heatsink features a nice mirror finish.
The fan is a low speed 1,000RPM unit that consumes a mere 0.12A!
There are ridges on the heatsink to allow mounting of 120mm fans as well. Unfortunately, no clips are provided for this.
We will be using the LGA775 mounting for this review, the bracket is screwed onto the base of the heatsink.
