I havnt seen one of those in a while. Its a single tower with its center removed (dont @ me). There was a time where a few manufacturers were removing fins around fan dead zones.

no the same though is it. You dont have a fan sandwiched between two heat sinks. First came the big square tower coolers (eg. scythe ninja), then came the towers with fan dead zones removed (eg. Cooler Master Z600), then came the twin towers with a fan in the center.

Not really, look at the direction of airflow. In your picture, the airflow runs across both parts at once, in the picture I linked the airflow runs through one and then through another, with a fan in between.

No you can't, then you would have airflow in two different directions. 

 

Why does it matter?

Its single tower slip in half. You can't really have fan in between those. Or rather it wouldn't be very useful function. You can see from the actual fan, that the width is too slim to gain anything from having fan there.

 

Now if you want to call it dual tower, there's no one against it. May cause confusion, if you use it in terms where you compare its performance to D9 or Fuma. Of which it might be able to rival D9, but doubt it.

If the fins are separated, it's a dual tower.
