So here we see the cooler itself, the N520 is sizable, measuring roughly 121 x 102 x 140mm. Spot the high count aluminum fins, that should definitely help cooling down. it's a sturdy cooler in looks and feel. Overall definitely pleasing to the eyes. Despite it's size it's quite easy to fit in your PC though.
Here we see the dual 92mm fans a little better, each fan has ten blades, the 3-pin power leads from each are tied together so that you only have to make one connection to your motherboard or fan controller to power this cooler.
So follow the fan wiring, each fan is powered by a 3-pin connector. These connectors are plugged into a two into one power line so you are only using one fan header on your motherboard. Here you can see the heat pipes a little better as well. Five in total. Three U shaped, two L shaped.
