The Thermaltake RamOrb
Here we see the cooler with the G.Skill PI memory installed and how yours should look once memory is installed in the cooler. Notice the length of the cable; you should be able to run the power cable to a CD/DVD ROM as long as your memory is on the side of the case. Some motherboards place memory in odd locations and running a dedicated power connector to the memory may be needed.
On the back we get a better look at the copper fins that are soldered to the copper heatpipe. The actual shield is made of aluminium.
Here is a closer look at the fin to heatpipe connection. Many companies simply place the fins over the pipe and do not take the extra step of securing them with solder. Thermaltake did not take the easy way out and managed to get a tight secure connection that will transfer heat better.
When I first opened the package and saw the RamOrb I was worried about spacing, but the heatpipe is able to rotate inside of the cooler making it possible to angle the fan and fins.
Using an Allen Head, the two aluminium shields are easily removed making memory installation a snap. You can see that Thermaltake has already applied thermal paste on the cooler where it holds the heatpipe. Our sample cooler came with thermal transfer material already in place; retail products will include the material in the accessory bag along with silicone compound. You can tell by the indentions that the transfer material presses firmly across the memory modules and will even conform to their shape.
For those interested in more information about the G.Skill memory used in our testing, here is a picture of the specifications and model number for the DDR2 memory.
