Thermaltake has been making aftermarket VGA coolers longer than anyone, and their DuOrb cooler continues the ORB tradition. Both 80mm fans feature a unique curvature that Thermaltake has patented and called Scurve. The design allows more air to flow over the fins while reducing foreground pressure, thus reducing noise.

The Thermaltake DuOrb is actually smaller than it appears in the window. You see the cooler but the package plays tricks with your sight. The compatibility list is on the front but in very small lettering.
On the back side Thermaltake lists the compatible cards again, and goes into some of the features and specifications of the cooler.
As stated before, the cooler is smaller than it appears inside of the box. Notice the fan blades and the unique shape; Thermaltake claims this reduces noise, something we will be testing later in the article.
On the bottom we have a copper block, dual heatpipes and tightly packed fins.
As you can see here, the DuOrb doesn't have a very large surface area.
By placing the fans inside of the cooling fins, the cooler is able to make maximum use of the moving air.
VRM and memory heatsinks are included with the DuOrb. The VRM heatsinks are very thin, if you try to apply too much force when placing them on the VRMs you can bend them, I did.
