Taisol CMK702151A Copper Heatpipe Heatsink Review
Abstract: The tri-heatpipe and suspended base heatsink we see here from Taisol is one of the more unique concepts to come out of Taiwan of late.

Taisol CMK702151A From All Angles

The Fan: The fan measures 70mm wide by 15mm thick and exhausts up, from the base of the heatsink out through the cooling fins. The cooling fins are 0.3mm thick aluminum with a small rise at the top and bottom of an otherwise flat surface (to help create turbulence). The fins are spaced nearly 3mm apart which seems somewhat large to me...The fan connects to the motherboard fan header via a 3-pin connector which also supports RPM monitoring and is pretty quiet.

Top: The three copper heatpipes intersect through the center of the copper fins and also support the fan and fin section. From some trace amounts of glue visible, it would appear as though the copper tubes are epoxied into place. The copper tubes are 6mm in diameter, the base 8mm thick.

Side A: On the opposite side of the heatsink there is one heatpipe coming into the aluminum fins to hold it in place. The fins on the aluminum heatspreader are about 0.5mm thick and 10mm tall. The fins are spaced 1mm apart and serve to help out with the cooling by making use of the air being sucked into the 70mm cooling fan which sits just 5mm above.
Side B:
The fan rests 6mm below the base of the 45mm section of aluminum cooling fins. The space given between the fan and the fins is usually there to help create a smoother airflow. The clip on the CMK702151A uses all three tabs on the Socket to hold the heatsink firmly in place. Because the Taisol CMK702 is so tall, tipping could otherwise be a problem.

Heatsink Base:

The copper base is pretty flat, but the screw heads and aluminum sides make the base not entirely flush from end to end. Since this cooler is intended for Socket A AMD processors, only a small portion of the base actually makes contact with the CPU core.
