First Look:

The EnzoTech Ultra-X comes bundled with everything you need to get up and running on every popular platform available today.  While I know that some of you are still looking for a good Socket A or Pentium 478 cooler, the truth is - you have old gear.  If you want a new cooler, get new gear.

The bundle consists of a retention frame back plate for AMD platforms if you don't have one already.  If you have a current retention frame already on your Athlon motherboard, you won't even need to remove the motherboard to install this cooler.  There is also a backplate and mounting hardware for Intel LGA775 platforms as well as a bag of screws, washers, and more.  EnzoTech has also included a PCI slot mounted fan controller, a installation manual and some Arctic Silver 5.  Not a bad bundle for any cooler.

Below are some pictures of this cooler from various angles so that you can get a better idea of its size and design.

Closer Look:

The bottom of the Ultra-X shows us a couple of things.  First off, you can see how fine and close the fins are and how they interact with the heatpipes.  In the second picture below you can also see just how fantastic the finish on the HSF base really is.  EnzoTech claims that it is a mirror finish and I can't argue with them.  Not only is the HSF base smooth it also appears to be very flat.
