The ZEROtherm CoolMaxx 2000 GPU Cooler
Removing the CoolMaxx from the box, we can get a better look at the basic design and concept. The four pipe ends come from the base and are snugly bent, then bend again before they carry their heat into the 52 fins. While everything is plated for a unified look, the pipes are copper and the fins are aluminum.
Flipping the CoolMaxx over, we get a better idea of how this works. The mounting legs are fixed to the base from the factory and are very solid. Centering the mounting legs is the plated copper base. The heat runs from the base to the pipes and into the fins as I mentioned, but this angle shows the "heart" of the CoolMaxx 2000; the variable speed, 80mm fan.
Orienting the cooler flat on the table allows you to view the cooler as the motherboard would see it. A couple things to note; the pipes are oriented in a slanted "X" fashion, the fins are scalloped for additional eye appeal and as you can see, the fan is wired through the fins to keep wiring tidy and safe.
This is the view most users of ATX cases are going to see, only upside down. From here we see the ZEROtherm and VGA Cooler stamps in the fins and the center mounted fan with its two screws (to remove for maintenance). The fan does show from this side, but that allows for an easy glance to check the fan for motion.
Once we get a little closer to the base, it is easier to see that the corners are rounded, but the majority of the center is relatively flat. I say relatively, as there are many hills and valleys on this base that the plating doesn't completely level out. I wouldn't consider the surface to be bad, but I just can't say it's level.
