Evercool Transformer 4 (HPJ-12025) CPU Cooler
Posted on: 12.10.2009 01:00:00

You can see the Evercool Transformer 4 is properly protected. As I’ve come to expect, the base is covered with a protective film.

Here is the Transformer 4 – as you can see, it is a direct-heatpipe heatsink (as apposed to a copper/metal block at the bottom). This has proved to be effective at cooling CPUs.

Side on, the Transformer 4 looks pretty big. However, by removing the fans from each side – it looks much thinner! However he same can be said for the Transformer 4s competitors. The two fans are coated in a cool silver colour, which works well amongst the aluminium fins.

The top of the heatsink shows the exposed heatpipes (which Evercool has - unlike most manufacturers – rounded off – this is a nice effort from Evercool). Also is the Transformer 4 name brandished on the top. The top is actually quite simplistic, but appealing from a visual prospective.

Here is the back of the cooler – much like the front it features a fan (but of course facing the opposite direction).

Here is the Evercool Transformer 4 in all its glory (not surrounded by fans!). The shiny copper heatpipes are easily visible amongst the fins. As I have already said – the top of the heatpipes are rounded off, however this appears to be in the form of chroming or alike.

And finally a shot of the base of the heatsink – it was a pain to photograph as it seems to have been manufactured to a mirror finish.

The accessory kit is identical to that of the Titan Fenrir (bar a different brand of thermal paste). Listed from top left to right; HSF clip, LGA775/AMD backing plate, heatsink raisers, thermal paste, thumb screws, screws, LGA 775 washers, AMD K8 washers, i7 backplate.

The rear cardboard bit of the packaging also folds out to be an instruction booklet. The included instructions are very easy to follow, and the inclusion of colour photos makes it all the more easier.
