Box Cooler For E6700 And Q6600 Series
Even today's familiar box cooler, sold with the Conroe-based Core 2 CPUs, is based on Intel's standard reference design. It does add another change to the design, though, featuring split cooling fins that point to the right, just like on the first samples. The fan spins towards the right as well. Compared to the engineering sample coolers, the aluminum block is also lower by 8 mm, measuring 30 mm high.

Despite running at nearly identical fan speeds, the box cooler's cooling potential is lower than that of the version with a larger copper core. Under full load the quad-core processor reaches 89.5°C with this model. When idle, the temperature drops to 41.5°C.
