Overall Score 4.6  

The quality of construction and finish is very good, though not uncommon at this level, it is still good to see. A total of twelve heat pipes take the heat away from the base plate.

The base is very polished, but it can always be taken further if required. If you rub thermal paste into the base plate before mounting, this will fill a good number of scratches or imperfections that may cause performance issues.
