As you can see from the extensive list above, the MK-13 fits with just about every modern single-GPU card on the market.

The packaging of the cooler is a fairly standard cardboard box. The colours of the box are blue and black, trimmed in white, and there is a line diagram on the front which gives a diagram of the cooler, and basic product information on the back. When you open the box you will see that the cooler is packed in dense foam to protect it nicely during transport.

The accessories here are quite extensive. Prolimatech has included a tube of their thermal compound, as well as the all the necessary mounting brackets for various ATI and Nvidia single GPU cards (see specifications previously noted for more detailed list), installation manual, a universal backplate, case support bracket, VRM heatsink, and all the necessary screws and bolts.

Let’s take a closer look at the heatsink itself.
