    Up close :

    The Infinity is huge, there is no doubt about that, it ranks among the heaviest heatsinks I’ve tested to date. The aluminum fins are intertwined to provide maximum surface area for the 120mm fan to blow over, without increasing the weight/material used:

    The base is very smooth and quite large; the smaller heatsink sitting on the back of the base serves also as the mounting connection for the different “plug-ins” depending on the CPU platform.
