The heatsink features five "U" shaped copper heatpipes
in staggered array and 53 fins. It is designed to be cooled by either one or
two 120mm fans.
The Flex has a distinct black band of anodized fins at the center, making
it easily recognizable. The fins are 0.40mm thick and spaced 1.50mm apart
on average, very tight for a CPU heatsink.
A black plastic cover resides on the top of the cooler. The two main surfaces
are dissimilar, one being noticeably wavy while the other is more flat.
Pictures on Zalman's product page show a single fan mounted on the wavy
side, but nothing in the literature suggests that one side is superior
to the other.
Zalman also provides black rubber isolation strips for the fan(s), following
in the footsteps of Noctua and Thermalright. It's obvious they've placed
an emphasis on keeping the fan from being flush with the main heatsink
The Flex is a more plain heatsink compared to the Extreme, lacking the
nickel plating on the fins, heatpipes and base.
