Taisol CCP445172 Heatsink From All Angles

The Fans:
From the top, the Taisol CCP445172 looks like an immensely complicated heatsink but that isn't the case at all. The heatsink clip mechanism wraps around each of the four posts on the stock intel HSRM and then a single point lever applies the correct force to the processors core. Simple! The fan is 70mm in size and hooks up to a standard 3-pin motherboard fan header and supports RPM monitoring.

Bare Heatsink:

The aluminum fan shroud rests on the tips of the fins, and will fall loose if you pick it up by that section (it isn't attached in any way). The folded copper fins are spaced apart by little remaining tabs at each end, and at the center.

Side A:
From the side it is easier to see how all the folded copper fins are actually one and the same. The copper measures just 0.3mm thick, and each fin is spaced roughly 2mm apart from one another. The fins bend and sway a little at the center so that separation changes slightly. The copper base measures 5mm thick, and the fins are 31mm in height.

Side B:
The fan shroud supports the fan and heatsink clip mechanism but isn't attached directly to the copper fins. The fins are 95mm wide, and undercut 7mm or so for clearance.

Heatsink Base:
The copper base shows a slight bow lengthwise, but is just about dead flat across. This is pretty typical of belt sanded bases - the center of the base generally bows out a bit. The surface finish is pretty smooth, but not polished. Thermal paste would be required with this base.
