Starting off with the CPU cooler plate, Corsair has mounted it to the unit with eight screws to the bottom of the unit. The plate itself has a thermal compound tape applied. This allows the cooler to be put on a CPU without requiring thermal paste. The base of the unit itself is a round shape that will easily cover any modern CPU. The base contains the pump and water block for the unit.

Leading out from the pump are two tubes that lead out to the radiator. These tubes are spiral and will not kink when in operation. A 3-pin power connector provides power for the unit with sleeved wires. The tubes lead to the aluminum radiator that has four holes for the 120mm fan that is included with the kit. The unit is self-contained meaning you canít take it apart easily for servicing. The entire unit is black with the Corsair name and logo appearing in white atop the radiator.
