Vantec FCE-6030D Heatsink Review

We've never been able to give up the chance of looking at a brand new heatsink, and the FCE-6030D was just such an opportunity. A fresh heatsink design which has yet to be seen anywhere, and more surprisingly, one which was all aluminum. With the growing trend towards all-copper designs, could an all-aluminum heatsink even compete?

This was the first thought that had crossed our minds, but one which was soon settled as we looked at the results from our tests. We found it interesting to note that with this heatsink a high aspect ratio fin design was implemented. In the past we've only ever seen this type of fin density on TEC-specific coolers. According to Vantec, the fin design was chosen specifically to reduce the weight of the heatsink, and to produce a more compact cooling design.

The FCE6030D uses a two-part construction and a signature 6800RPM Delta fan. The Delta fan, as many of you may already be aware, is one of the best performance 60mm fans out there, but also kicks out a very shrill 46dBa of noise.

Designed for:

AMD Athlon, Duron.
