PHYSICAL DETAILS & INSTALLATION

The Thermalright Venomous X Silent Edition is composed of a copper base, 6 x 6 mm thick copper heatpipes soldered to 47 aluminum fins, and the entire body is also nickel-plated. By our measurements, the heatsink weighs approximately 780 grams and stands 161 mm tall. The included mounting system is the same employed by the Thermalright Silver Arrow. The installation procedure is detailed here.


On average the fins are 0.53 mm thick and spaced 1.84 mm apart, an increase of more than 20% compared to the various editions of the Ultra-120 eXtreme.


Viewed from another angle.


The base of the Venomous X is convex and has a nice shine which is absent from some of Thermalright's older coolers.


The mounting system employed is similar to that used by Prolimatech. Simple but effective, it features a bar at the center that exerts considerable pressure on the base.


Installed on our test motherboard with a pair of Nexus 120 mm fans. Note that if you use the wire clips, they should be installed before mounting the heatsink. The hooks are unusually long and may interfere with northbridge and VRM heatsinks.
