Vantec CCK-6035 Copper Heatsink Review
copper heatsinks are becoming as
popular as the Orb's were when they first arrived on store
shelves these days. This time the reasons have more to do with pure cooling power then anything else however. With the amazing performance brought about by
the Thermalright SK6, we were really excited to see what the brand new
Vantec CCK-6035D could do.
The CCK-6035D is assembled in
much the same way as the Thermalright SK6, although is uses a more
traditional way of attaching the fan to the body of the heatsink. Solder marks
are clearly visible along the base of the fins so the interface between the 34 fins appears
Vantec are known for their prolific use of Delta
fans & wire grills and the CCK-6035D is no exception. Clad in
its shinning chrome armor the Delta whirled up when we dropped the power
switch - with a noise like that you can just tell this heatsink
is going to put up a good fight against the SK6!

One of the nicest features of the CCK-6035D is the clip it uses. The hinged
clip is incredibly easy to use and enables you to position the heatsink on a
processor with a minimum of tipping action. The thumb pad is easy to hold onto
and is a nice change from heatsinks that require a screwdriver to engage.
The fins are each bent on the base so that there is a
millimeter or so of material to come in contact with the copper base plate. From
the looks of it, the base plate was heated up and a good amount of solder was
used to form a solid joint. Since the fins are packed so closely together it is
difficult to say for sure, but there are no spaces visible that we could see.
The tops of the fins are all interlocked by means of small flaps that help
give the thin-fins some support, and maintain their separation.
