A Closer View

The CoolViva is packaged with an instruction sheet, installation hardware, eight individual stick-on memory sinks, thermal paste, a vented riser plate and power cable. The instructions are specific to the model of card and include diagrams of the important steps. The text is printed in several different languages and the English translation isn't perfect, but fairly good as far as those go. The fan is a radial type unit commonly found on video card coolers for low noise with high flow volume in a relatively small amount of space. The power wire for the fan offers both 3-pin and 4-pin configurations for connecting directly to the existing fan header on your video card.



The CoolViva features a copper base with three copper heatpipes that run the length (top to bottom) of the heatsink. The pipes cross through aluminum fins to dissipate heat. The radial fan forces air through the fins by blowing air from front to back and then out through the rear of the case using the vented riser plate. The fan shroud is not directly connected to the riser vent however and rather than forcing the hot air out the back of the case as some cooler designs allow for, the CoolViva is just blowing the air in that direction.
