A Closer Look
We will start off with taking a look at the stock fans that come included. These fans are actually not the same size one is a 140 mm and the other is 120mm both have 9 blades and are made from very heavy duty plastic and are very thick. Both come with 4 pin plugs that will plug onto the motherboard. Included in the box is also a splitter for the fans so you can hook both fans into oneCPU fan plug on the motherboard. The fans maximum RPM are 2200 for the 120mm and 1800 for the 140mm.
Next we will take a look at the cooler itself and its construction. The cooler is constructed from 5 8mm copper heat pipes mounted on the heat pipes for each cooler are 37 aluminum heat fins for a total of 74 fins on this bad boy even with that much metal the unit does mount securely to themother board without issue. The design on the cooler is reminiscent of a transformers pattern and gives it a bit of flavor.
As you can see the design of the Ferir is very cutting edge with a push / pull concept of air flow behind it the fan covering the CPU pushes air down cooling the CPU and other surrounding hardware and the rear facing fan pulls the heat out and pushes it out the back of the case where it can exit through the rear case fan.
The CPU block is made from all polished copper and looks to be a very nice surface to attach to a processor, The Fenrir also includes high grade thermal paste when your ready to mount the cooler and start a hardcore gaming session.
