The Box and Heatsink
I actually appreciate that Thermalright has chosen a very "plain" box and packaging for their T-Rad2. The heatsink is safely nestled away inside with all the mounting components and secondary heatsinks necessary to get the T-Rad2 functional on a slew of cards.
Besides the heatsink itself, the T-Rad2 comes complete with a bag of other heatsinks used to sink the memory, mosfets, and chokes on every card the T-Rad2 is compatible with. Make sure to cover all the hot components that the stock heatsink covers or else you could toast the card.
The heatsink has a total of six heatpipes soldered to the baseplate. The design features five heatpipes that dominate half the fin array while a single heatpipe diverts from the crowd and occupies the unoccupied half of the heatsink.
