The selling point of this massive heatsink is the 6 heatpipes that run through the copper unit. The pipes are filled with a liquid that evaps. and moves up the pipes. When it reaches the top, condensation occurs and the liquid flows back down. The heat is dissipated at the top of unit and the whole process continues again.

The surface area of the heatsink with fins welded into the pipes helps in spreading the heat out, as well as the bottom base which helps in the sudden burst of heat by the pipes in the process.

The pipes are nicely polished and shiny.

I was quite surprised at how clean and smooth the base of the unit was. Most of the time, a little bit of lapping is needed to get it just right. Not the case here.

The first thing you have to do to install the Hyper 6 is to remove the stock brackets on your motherboard. To do that, you will have to remove your motherboard from your case if it is installed already.

Then you'll want to put the backplate on the back of the motherboard making sure the holes show through. Then place the include Hyper 6 bracket over the top and screw it down with the included screws. On my Abit IC7, it barely cleared the caps that were next to the socket area. They had to be pushed a bit to get the bracket to fit.

Next, place the heatsink on top of the CPU and secure each side with the included clips. It's a tight fit, but a few contortions of my fingers made it all go through.
