Installation and Finished Product Continued
Just for the product image I went ahead and put the fan on top of the cooler to give those planning to use it in this fashion an idea of what they will get.
If you don't have a height restriction, with a fan on top, it allows plenty of room for any sort of memory heat spreaders to easily pass under the fins.
What is nice about the NT06-PRO is the offset where it allows you to put the excess of the cooler over the memory or over the PWM heat sinks like I have it here. There were no restrictions mentioned in the instructions as to which way you should not install this cooler, and since I use a test bench, the motherboard is flat and vapor in the pipes being trapped is not a concern.
Back to the way the cooler is intended to be used, you can see it really cramps the memory with the fan underneath. There really isn't a good way to correct this either, as any ways you turn the cooler it either has fins over the memory, or the heat pipes were angled over them.
Even though the fan is slightly higher than the memory in these slots, you can see that access to the one closest to the CPU is now completely blocked. Makes sure the memory is in the slot first in your build, or it is going to take a bit of strategy to remove the fan inside of the SFF chassis to get the memory in.
I just wanted to step back and give you all the impression of the NT06-PRO that SilverStone had intended. With the fan under the fins blowing out into the chassis, the components and well as the CPU should stay a bit cooler. It also leaves you with the clean looking side of an air cooler. Even after a few months of dust buildup, this side of the cooler will still look exactly like this.
