Dynatron DC1206BMY Copper Pentium4 Heatsink Review

Dynatron heatsinks have made a good name for themselves since entering the mainstream market as relatively unknown competitors nearly two years ago. If you remember back to the summer of 2001 you might be interested to know that FrostyTech was the first to review a Dynatron heatsink, with the DC1206BML heatsink garnering a lot of interest for its then unique skived fins.

The number of heatsinks using skived fin technology has ballooned since then, and now a days there are many different models to choose from. In this review we will be checking out the DC1206BMY heatsink which is designed to cool the Pentium 4 m478 platform.

Skiving is a process by which the copper fins of the heatsink are drawn up to a height of 24mm from a flat plate of the material. The remains of that flat plate of copper go on to form the base of the actual heatsink which means the thermal properties should be very good. The significance of this set up is that there is no interface to be concerned with between the fins and base like solder, or thermal epoxy.

Since the heatsink makes use of an alternate form of HSRM, the cooler ships with its own complete socket. Installation may be a bit more tricky than other heatsinks since the motherboard will have to be removed to allow the HSRM that comes with this cooler to be installed.

The flexibility of this heatsink is that with the right mounting clips it can be used on either an Intel Pentium 4 or Xeon socket 603/4 processor. The unit we're testing is configured for the P4 platform, and actually there is no physical difference between the DC1206BMY and the DC1206BMY/X other than the clip. Now let's take a closer look at the Dynatron DC1206BMY.
