Dynatron DC1206BMP Heatsink From All Angles

The Fan:
Love them or hate them, Delta fans are everywhere. Protected by a wire gill, this noisy Delta fan blows air down into the copper Microfins of the Model-P heatsink. The 7-bladed, 38mm high fan pushes air into the Microfins while rotating at about 7000RPM. The fan connects to the motherboard via a three-pin connector, and supports RPM monitoring. A molex pass through is recommended instead of connecting this fan to the motherboard.

Bare Heatsink:
This level of fin density is something you are not going to see very often. Each copper fin is 0.35mm thick, and spaced about 1.0mm apart. Each of the 60 sets of fins measures about 21mm wide and 24mm tall. The clip sits in a trough 6mm wide. According to the manufacturer, airflow pressure is reached at the base of the fins for optimal cooling. The fan mounts to the shroud leaving approx. 3-4mm clearance from the tips of the fins.

Side A:
The clip used on the Model P is only operable with a flat headed screwdriver, but it is not difficult to engage or remove from the socket. There is no protection from the heatsink sliding on the die in the event the computer is moved, so as with most heavy copper heatsinks, it is always a good idea to remove it first, then transport the computer.

Side B:
From a side view the number and density of the one-piece copper Microfins becomes apparent. Each of those sixty fins is only 0.35mm thick, and have been formed from material skived off the base plate. The fins and the base plate are still the same piece of copper and no joints are necessary. The fins also somewhat resemble the teeth of a whale (used for filtering small shrimp from the ocean don't-cha-know).

Heatsink Base:
The base is perfectly flat and very smooth (good machining) but not lapped or polished to a perfect mirror shine. The base is impeccably flat where the processor makes contact. For comparisons sake, it is quite similar to that of an Alpha base finish, and is also under cut for the socket cam arm.
