Vendetta Detailed Features

If you look close you can see the "dimple" design pressed into the micro-configuration of stacked aluminum finsink plates. Together with the "V" depression, this helps to add turbulence, thereby reducing the skin effect of laminar air flow over the OCZ Vendetta. In layman's terms, this allows air to get closer to the actual surface, rather than riding above it as it normally has a tendency to do.

Some inexperience readers have posted comments regarding the surface of the heatpipe direct touch design. Now that I have reviewed all three existing HDT designs, to include the Zaward VIVO and the Xigmatek HDT-S1283, I can assure you that the OCZ Vendetta is completely flush and true, just like the others were. Hopefully the images above and below will help reassure some of you.

OCZ has worked with Xigmatek to produce the Vendetta. As a result, the exposed HDT design is identical, as well as the clip and fan attachment plugs.

So now that you are thoroughly familiar with HPT (heatpipe direct touch), as well as the background and comparison products, you are prepared to see how the OCZ Vendetta does against its older siblings.
