A Closer Look – AR08


The fan is very nicely designed, with a blue housing and white blades that are sure to look great in your system; matches up nice with the eTeknix colours too.

If I have one gripe, it’s the multicoloured fan cable, which would have been better in all one colour, but it’s hardly a deal breaker.

The cooling tower is fairly straight forward in terms of design, with three U-shaped heat pipes that pass through each side.

The edges of each fin in the cooler tower are shaped to help better direct the airflow and also reduce air turbulence and noise.

Each fin is cut to allow better direction of the airflow and, of course, help cool the CPU better.

The three heat pipes are cut flat to allow direct contact with the CPU and there’s a good size block to ensure complete coverage of the CPU.

The slim design of the tower should ensure that there’s zero conflict with memory modules or any other motherboard components.
