Specifications and Package
The Thermaltake Jing features Heatpipe technology. So, you are asking what Heatpipe technology is. This explanantion from Thermaltake says it all:
“Heatpipes are generally small copper tubes filled with a fluid which has a very low boiling point, which enables it to move large quantity of heat with little difference in temperature between "hot" and "cold" interfaces. The fluids within the heatpipe are moved by capillary action. Heatpipe uses this to quickly transfer heat away from the CPU, reducing temperatures considerably while allowing heatsink manufacturers to reduce the weight of the heatsink. It also allows for the heatsink fins to be placed farther away from motherboard components. By placing the fins closer to chassis fans, the exhausted air can be removed from the case more efficiently.”

The Jing’s box is a standard cardboard box with a nice photo of the cooler on the front, technical specifications on the sides and back. The front of the box notes that the cooler is allegedly capable of dissipating up to 200 watts of heat.
Here we see the packaging and contents of the Thermaltake Jing:
All of the accessories are packaged neatly in their own container with detailed marking for each part on the lid. I like this approach much better than all those zip-lock baggies found with the majority of coolers on the market today. The included accessories found in the box is complete you a small tube royal thermal conductive material tube, installation manuals in several languages, mounting brackets for Intel LGA775/1156/1155/1366 and AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3.
Let’s take a closer look at the heatsink itself.
