The Cooler



Although menacing in this close up picture with the 80mm eleven blade fan the 5610 is only 99mm tall. The 3-pin connector shows that this is the Silent model.



From the side you see the two heatpipes that start at the bottom and move up into the aluminium fin area. On the bottom you can see the aluminium heatsink that rests on top of the heatpipes at the base.



Here you can see the heatsink that sits on the heatpipes at the base better. These are actively cooled by the 80mm fan.



The other side of the cooler is identical to the side we have shown you previously.



Here we see the Silent 3-pin power connector and the PWM 4-pin connector. The 5610s both use a 12 inch wire lead so reaching the correct power plug on the motherboard shouldn't be a problem.



The Silent is on the left and the PWM is on the right. Both of the fans appear to be identical other than the power connector. PWM fans are dynamic and change RPM based on sensors on the motherboard and on the fan.



Both models come from the factory with a coat of thermal compound pre-installed.



After removing the factory thermal paste we see that the 5610 does not have a mirror like finish.
