From the top of the cooler the MaxOrb looks similar to other Thermaltake Orb products.
The side view tells a different story. As you can see this Orb has a rheostat mounted on the side so you can control the speed of the fans. Unlike other coolers, when you turn down the speed of the MaxOrb fan it will not reduce the brightness of the blue LEDs.
On this side you can see the way Thermaltake used three heatpipes and routed them to the fin area and back down to the base. This should theoretically double the cooling capacity of the MaxOrb.
The MaxOrb uses thin aluminium strips for the cooling fins. These can bend very easily so you need to be careful when mounting or moving the Orb by the fins.
Here you can see how Thermaltake made three rows of heatpipes to go around the cooler.
As you can see here the pipes go all the way around the cooler making use of the entire fin area.
The base of the MaxOrb is very smooth and has a mirror finish due to the nickel plating.
