The cooler is fairly small and measures 158 x 115 x 36mm. The manufacturer doesn’t mention the cooler weight anywhere, but according to our measurements it does not exceed 350g.

The cooler heatsink array is composed of 50 aluminum plates, each 0.15mm thick. The plates are spaced out at 1.5mm distance.

Despite high plate density, they are pretty narrow: only 8mm with slightly wider spots right around the heatpipes:

So, the heatsink actually has pretty small heat dissipating surface area. Titan Twin Turbo doesn’t need high-pressure fans, either.

The heatpipes lie in special grooves in the cooler base. This increases the contact surface and improves the heat dissipation efficiency. The heatpipes are in fact soldered to the base. The finish quality of the copper base could have been better, because you can feel the machine marks to the touch:

Although the copper base is not polished in any way, it is very even.
