Kuthtec KTM2001 Honeycomb Copper Core Heatsink Rev
Kuthtec KTM2001 Honeycomb Copper Core Heatsink Rev
Abstract: So while the KTM2101 has 1mm spaced fins, all the cooling on this heatsink occurs within the 120 or so "multi wind tunnels."

Kuthtec KTM2001 From All Angles

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.

Top: 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 principals.

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.

Heatsink Base:

The central copper core is off center so that it will sit squarely on the core 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 located below.
