Above the cooler, it actually uses six copper based (nickel plated) heatpipes arranged in a C-shape design. The pure copper fins (nickle plated) effectively disperse heat away from the CPU via composite heatpipes, while the 140mm fan quickly cools the radiator for stable operation of high performance CPUs.
When we flip it around we see the heatpipes a little more up-close. Six of them making this product very efficient.
Not a 100% mirror flat finish, there's room for some improvement, though it's _very_ flat and by far good enough.

Noctua NH-U12S and NH-U14S review We test and review the Noctua NH-U12S and NH-U14S CPU coolers. Both coolers have recently been introduced into the channel with kicks performance and versus some really nice airflow OWM controlled fans that are drop-dead silent. Hey, it's Noctua .. so you know it's good, let's check out the review shall we ?
Noctua NH-C14 CPU cooler review In the long line of Noctua CPU coolers they introduced another CPU cooler, tagged with the name NH-C14, the heatpipes bent in a C shape and armed with not one, but two Noctua NF-P14 FLX 140mm fans this product is bound to keep any CPU released to date nicely cooled and chilled.
Noctua NH-D14 review It is called the Noctua NH-D14 premium cooler -- but as I like to call it ... the Big Ben. Noctua had to go back to the drawing board and came up with the NH-D14 premium CPU cooler. It is a six heatpipe dual radiator design to improve both cooling performance and noise levels. Obviously what catches the eyes is that dual radiator uneven design with a 140mm fan sitting smack down in the middle of the cooler.
