Kuthtec KTM2001 From All
||The Fan: |
The 60mm Superred fan draws 0.28A and is a little higher than average in terms of noise production.
The fan attaches to the shroud which also keeps it sitting just a little
bit above the rest of the heatsink. A 3-pin fan
header connects directly to the motherboard for power and RPM sensing.
The fan shroud keeps the base of the fan
6mm above the top most sheet of punched aluminum fin. This
space is important for airflow reasons, and also provides a platform for
the fan to attach to. The copper core measures just over 22mm in
diameter and features a 13mm hole at the top. The hole is about
12mm deep and is not an uncommon feature among heatsinks based on similar
||Side A: The stainless steel clip is tool free and works
really well. There is no venting on the side of the heatsink whatsoever. The fan
shroud goes all the way to the the base of the heatsink, and apart from a small
recess for the clip, the system is effectively sealed.
||Side B: |
Each of the
punched out fins are 2.0mm thick and mounted flush to one another. The only
exhaust openings are at the bottom of the heatsink where each of the small holes come
together to form little wind tunnels.
The central copper core is off center
so that it will sit squarely on the
of the AMD processor. The core itself
measures ~24mm in diameter and is very smooth, and flat. The clipping system is attached
directly to the copper section with little pins, so the fulcrum is a fixed point and
there is no chance of sliding. The holes here are where all the exhaust air
escapes the heatsink system, and as a side effect bounces off the processor
