As mentioned, this CPU cooler has six heat-pipes, three going to one side and three going to the other side of the cooler, as you can see in Figure 3. It is important to note that these six heat-pipes aren’t connected, even though it looks like there are only three heat-pipes (see Figure 4). The piece of metal that holds the speed control knob holds the tips of the six heat-pipes, not connecting them.
