Enough looking at the Cooler Master TX2 in its packaging; let's see how this thing looks outside. The TX2 not only has the fan that comes attached to the heatsink, but the housing that holds the fan to the heatsink also acts as a funnel to direct the air that is being moved and suck air off of the surrounding motherboard components that tend to get warm.
Looking down from above the TX2, you can see that the unit has six copper heat pipes that go through the aluminum fins. These copper heat pipes connect to the bottom heatsink base, which is also made of copper. From below, not only do you see the copper base, but you are also able to see that Cooler Master has already put a thermal compound on the base, which is nice if you do not have any thermal paste laying around.
A very nice feature of this heatsink is that you are able to remove the plastic housing for the fan and use the heatsink for passive CPU cooling. This is nice if you are trying to build a quiet PC.
Let's take a look at the specifications of this device. I am very curious to see what Cooler Master put into this cooler.
