Despite the rather understated appearance of the packaging, the heatsink itself has quite an unusual design, making it look a bit more exciting than the likes of the Noctua NH-D14.  It takes the form of a dual-tower design with eight U-shaped heatpipes, passing through the CPU block at the bottom.

The CPU block itself is made from nickel-plated copper and has a mirror finish.  It is also slightly bowed which is claimed to help improve performance.

The eight 6mm heatpipes pass through the base at the bottom and extend through the stacks of fins on either side.

The heatsink itself stands 165 mm tall in total, and consists of two stacks of aluminium fins arranged around the eight nickel-plated copper heatpipes.  It measures 130 mm deep with the fans installed and 103 mm on it’s own.

All of the heatpipes are capped on the ends, giving the cooler a very tidy appearance.

Thermalright supply two TY-145 140 mm fans with the cooler which can spin up to 1,300 RPM.  This is the differentiating factor between this Special Edition version of the cooler and the Extreme version which has 2,500 RPM fans.

Therefore this model is designed with acoustics in mind.

When the fans are attached, the cooler is very large indeed.  It’s even wider than the Noctua NH-D14 and Phanteks PH-TC14PE which makes it huge.

    Id much rather have the Corsair H100 or H110. These take up too much space around the CPU socket.

    “they will both be completely inaudible when used inside a quality case.”

    No, just no. Neither of them will ever be completely inaudible
