Vantec CCK-7025 Copper Pentium 4 Heatsink Review

The last time we had a Vantec heatsink on the chopping block was early on in the summer, and as we move into the fall with the CCK7025 CopperX-478 we can take note of a few things. First off, Vantec heatsinks are just about 100% copper these days (although a new all aluminum heatsink is expected shortly), and secondly we can see that they have upgraded their manufacturing a bit.

It is really nice, and somewhat reassuring to see that the CCK7025 has a well machined copper base. The base and the fins of the CCK7025 are copper, and the aluminum shroud is all aluminum (thankfully, we seem to be past that plate everything copper stage). That old copper plating technique made everything shiny, but it didn't really add anything to the heatsink performance wise.

    The clipping system is the same as was used on the Vantec GSN-7025, and it works just as well as it did on that all aluminum cooler. With the interlocking copper fins forming a support for the clip, we get good compression on the socket without placing too much stress on the underlying PCB. The interlocking copper fins are something I actually saw first showcased about two years ago at Comedex by a company called Neng Tyi.

    The aluminum fan shroud stands about 1mm proud of the base surface which gives good scratch protection I suppose. The shroud is held in place with a few screws and while it may look copper in the picture above, it is really just anodized that way.
