The Cooler



From the side you can see the length of the cables on the V1 and the accessory box.



A closer look at the V1 shows the way the heatpipes are arranged with one set going high and another set entering the fin area in the middle.



A side view shows the low-side heatpipes and a bracket for stability on the top.



Here you can see the fan that is in the middle of the cooler. By placing the cooler on the inside The V1 is able to take advantage of the air moving to and away from the fan.



The heatpipes that are mounted on the other side go to the top of the cooler where the bracket is installed.



Here's a closer look at the rheostat Thermaltake used on the V1. I really can't figure out why this wasn't either mounted to the cooler or given a longer cable.



A closer look at the bottom of the heatsink where it contacts the CPU shows us a pretty cloudy picture. Unlike the MaxOrb the V1 does not have a nickel plated coating and it does not have the mirror finish enthusiasts have come to expect these days.
