The cooler is quite large, almost 135mm square. From this view you can see the blue LEDs that are embedded into the 120mm fan. The cooler comes from the factory with Intel mounting hardware installed, but this can be swapped out for AMD hardware found in the accessory bag.

Moving on, the base of the cooler is made of the copper heat pipes and an aluminum bracket to support the pipes and hold them in place.

The fan on the Gyre is a little different than most. The golf ball like holes are on both sides of the fan blade and are said to reduce audible noise from the fan.

With the fan off of the cooler we see the plastic shroud that directs air through the aluminum fins.

With the cooler removed from the shroud we get a better look at the plastic fins that route air through the cooler.

The fins are typical of modern CPU coolers, aluminum and spaced a couple of millimeters apart.
