Cooler Master HHC-001 Copper Heatpipe Heatsink

HHC-001 From All Angles

The Fan:

This fan is loud, fast, and did we mention noisy? The 25mm thick Coolermaster branded fan draws 0.35A and rotates at 6800RPM. This is the one time when the fan grill actually serves a purpose and I wouldn't advise removing it either. The fan connects to the motherboard and supports RPM monitoring.

Top:The heatpips in the HHC-001 move thermal energy from where the processor core sits on the base to the outer edges of the fins in a very clever fashion. Those areas where the heatpipes meet the fins are directly under the fastest moving flow of air from the fan. It is important to remember that all heatpipes have a working temperature range where they reach maximum efficiency. If temperatures rise too high all the liquid in the pipes is turned to vapor and the processes is stopped dead in its tracks. If the temperature is not warm enough then the liquid does not evaporate inside the tube either. The heatpipes on the HHC-001 are the same as those of the HHC-L61.

Side A: The HHC-001 has plane copper fins with no marking, or slits of any kind. The aluminum fan shroud is riveted into place with stainless steel which is a nice sign of detail by the manufacturer. The Coolermaster logo is also stamped on the side lest you forget.
Side B:
The two heatpipes stick out from the side of the heatsink about 20mm, and this may pose issues with certain motherboards and closely placed capacitors. The thumb clip Coolermaster use is really nice, and very easy to get a hold on. No tools are required and that is something we really like to see. At the same time, the clip is not so flimsy that it bends out of shape while you are in the middle of removing the heatsink. There are a total of 26 copper fins. Each fin is spaced ~1.5mm apart and measures 0.4mm thick.

Heatsink Base:

The HHC-001 has a sanded base which is alright, but not especially amazing given the machining most OEM manufacturers are now offering to consumers. The base is a bit rounded, but, nothing dangerously so.
