Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme CPU Cooler

This isn't a funky camera angle; the three sizes of fins do droop as they extend to the outside of the cooler leaving the fins pointing to the top. These 63 fins are set in levels near the top and bottom to just use what the 140mm fan can cover.

Both towers in this design are exact matches with no offset or naming to say which way is correct and which is 180 degrees out. On the edges there are sharp angles to make the arrow design while also providing a way for the fans to attach.

Across the top, the three levels of fins look like arrowheads if they were stacked and pointing to the center of the cooler towers. Also so you don't have to look at crimped heatpipe ends, they use these nut shaped caps to cover the termination of the pipes.

On the sides there are two grooves in each side of the tower. This will allow you to be able to use three fans with this cooler, and again in either direction since the wire fan mounts can go on both sides of each tower.

Looking down at the top of the cooler you can clearly see the shapes and voids built into each of the towers. The fins are made to sit further away near the center of the fan while being wider near the edges where the fan produces the most air flow.

Looking down between the towers you can see the holographic sticker with the Thermalright name and logo with the products serial number printed along the bottom.

The shot gives you a good idea of the bends made as the pipes exit the base and the angles used to make for an even dispersal of the pipes as the fins are pressed over them.
