The DeepCool Ice Blade Pro features a U shaped heatpipe design, with 4 8mm heatpipes making a patented CTT (Core Touch Technology) contact with the CPU. It also features an included 120mm blue LED fan, to give the case that extra blue illumination. This CPU not only looks great, but is easy to install with the complete tool-free installation. Let’s take a closer look.
The included fan has a smoked color to go along with the four blue LEDs found in the corners of the 120mm fan. The fan connection is a 4-pin PWM with a meshed sleeve cable.
The heatsink is composed of 47 aluminum fins with alternating sizes. Every fourth fin going up the heatsink is notched in slightly to help increase the cooling performance.
Each fin is rectangular in design and has two jagged sections on either side. The fins are also beveled down in the middle.
The four, 8mm heatpipes seem to have a nickel coating on them to give them that extra shine, but in reality they are just copper. The heatpipes are setup in a U-shaped design through the heatsink. The two center heatpipes are closer to the center of the heatsink, while the outer 2 are a heatpipe length away from the center two.
The base of the Ice Blade Pro features the CTT (Core Touch Technology) which is basically just like any other direct-touch CPU cooler. The four heatpipes are sanded down to be flush with the base and show some the real color of the copper heatpipes.
