It is a rather questionable solution since there are two pipes pumping heat into the smallest heatsink while the larger, side heatsinks are serviced by only one pipe each.
The central heatsink is fixed on the cooler’s base while the side sections can be unfolded:
The pipes do not wobble and you have to apply some pressure to tilt the sections of the heatsink. However, the reliability of the whole arrangement and, more importantly, the efficiency of the heat transfer between the moving pipes and the base are questionable. We’ll see how it works in the Tests section.
The mechanism of fixing the tilted heat pipes in place is located in the cooler’s bottom part.
You should use the third retention hole for Intel CPUs and the second hole for AMD CPUs:
I don’t quite understand these limitations because the tilt of the side sections of the heatsink can only be limited by some near-socket components like heatsinks on power elements or memory modules. I don’t think this has any relation to the specifics of heat generation of Intel and AMD CPUs.
I also have some concerns about the contact between the pipes and the heatsink ribs. Note that the heat pipe has contact with only 50% of the rib.
This method of contact is used for every heat pipe, including the medium pair. This simple solution proves to be not very effective in practice, though.
