A Detailed look at the CCK-6027D:
If you happen to know a little bit about metallurgy, you will probably notice
that the shroud on the CCK-6027D, and indeed the entire unit, looks too
shiny to be natural. This isn't a bad thing by any means, but we would like
to point out that like its brother the CCK-6035D, the shroud is aluminum
The entire heatsink has been plated, or perhaps powder coated (and baked), into a lustrously
shiny copper coat. It certainly makes the heatsink look cleaner and from what
we can see inhibits oxidation from fingerprints and the like from immediately appearing.

Now you could be forgiven for thinking that this
heatsink is simply a shorter version of the one we've seen previously.
While it is true that the fin section on the CCK-6027D stands 22mm tall
and the same component on the CCK-6035D is 32mm tall, that doesn't necessarily mean
lower performance - quite the opposite in fact.
Setting aside the obvious differences in fin height, the CCK-6027D comes to the table packing a higher fin density. As
we all know, higher fin density equates to a larger surface area,
and if properly executed can lead to better cooling performance - as
you are just about to see.
