The kit includes a manufacturer’s H5SF Hydro Series CPU cooler, which is mounted on top of the motherboard and also provides other internal components of cooling. The cooler blows warm air from the case by a small radiator perpendicular to the direction of rotation of the fan state. Despite its small form factor, the company promises a cooling capacity of 150W, more than enough for most processors.
