Closer Look

As you can see from our closer look, the cooler’s heatsink is massive. Here is where you can get a better look at the unique design of the aluminum fins. This really makes it stand out as a one of a kind.

Here is a side profile of the cooler. The fins are dense which will prove to be helpful with cooling as it can dissipate the heat better.

Here you can see the Gamer Storm logo imprinted on the top of the heatsink, as well as the soldered heat pipe ends. If you are counting, yes, there are 16 ends. This obviously means you have 8 heat U channel heat pipes. We will go a little more into that later.

Here’s another angle of the top to show a closeup view of the fin design.

Moving down to the lower section of the cooler you can see the heat pipe design. There are 8 massive heat pipes traveling through this cooler.

Here is another angle. The nickle plating on the heat pipes is really top quality.

Here’s a closeup look at the base. The solid cooper base here is nickle plated to a mirror finish and sits nice and flat on your CPU.

Here is another angle showing off the mirror finish of the base with a nice reflection.

Moving back to the cooler’s fans, you can see here the green and black look great together. Also, the black housing of the fans is covered by a rubber gasket that helps to reduce vibration.

Here’s a close-up of the Gamer Storm Logo on the fan.

Let moves on to the installation of the cooler.
