The Evercool Transformer 4 CPU Cooler
After removing the Transformer 4 from the inner package I saw a bit of damage that I had pointed out earlier. After removing the fan on this side where the damage is done, at some point in the coolers life it was pretty bad. Not that this damage isn't fixable, enough to test it at leastl; but I don't think a cooler should arrive damaged in the first place.
This is a slightly different view of what I consider to be the impact zone. I can see how the initial impact made the fan cause the rest of the damage. The box it was shipped in and the plastic blister pack show no damage at all. I can only assume it was boxed damaged before it was even shipped.
After about twenty minutes with a pair of needle-nosed pliers and a bit of re-assembly of the cooler, we are left with a presentable profile of the Transformer 4. At the bottom you get a good look at the beefy 8mm heatpipes. These pipes travel through the aluminum fins. The heat is then blown away by the two silver fans that look good against the aluminum fins and chromes heatpipe caps.
This view of the intake shows that Evercool does a nice job of packing 51 fins into the back of a 120mm fan and still cover most of the fin area. These fans are rated quiet, but to do so they only revolve at 1000 RPM max, with 12V applied to them.
A look at the exhaust shows that even the fans are labelled as I say, quiet and 12volt.
Laying the Transformer 4 down to get a view at the top shows a unique cut to the fins and that the heatpipes are run in a straight line of four to each side. The wire fan clips are very easy to release with less pressure than some of the others I have played with in testing. They are solid in the holding of the fan to the cooler, but are much easier to release for cleaning.
Flipping the cooler over, we get to the business end of things. As you can see, Evercool has gone the way of the heatpipes touching the IHS for better thermal transfer, as did many others. The base is flat and the finishing is sufficiently done.
Here is one last impression of the Transformer 4, in all its glory, ready to be installed on our T.E.C.C. for testing.
