Just above the contact patch, where the four heatpipes make direct contact with the CPU, is a small heatsink section. This will help reduce the heat at this area, increasing the effectiveness of the heatpipes which work via temperature differences.

On the underside, the heatpipes have been flattened to come directly into contact with the IHS on the CPU for optimal heat transfer.

With the SF120R fan featuring RGB lighting, two cables are required, both of which are sleeved in a braided material to avoid any colours showing through. The RGB lighting is provided via a 4-pin 5v connection and the fanís speed is controlled through a 4-pin PWM header.

Clipping the fan to the front, itís clear to see where the Black Edition name comes from. The fan, with its 25mm thickness and the mounting points, add on about 30mm to the depth of the cooler, totalling around 80mm at this point.

On the reverse we can see the fan clips working their magic around the sides. As we previously mentioned, itís possible to attach a second fan to increase cooling performance. This could work as a cheap cooling upgrade in the future if you wish to overclock your CPU and find your temperatures are a touch higher than youíre comfortable with.
