Dynatron DC1U-B01 Heatsink From All Angles
The Fan:
The 50mm squirrel cage fan is an ingenious solution to the vertical height constraints of the 1U rack mount environment. The fan can be removed and oriented in this fashion, or with the exhaust going to out to the side. The air is dawn into the fan through the copper fins on either side of the fan shroud so it is important to ensure there are no obstructions hampering airflow. The fan draws power from a standard three-pin motherboard header which supports RPM monitoring.

Heatsink Top:
This hole in the fan shroud serves as the intake for the fan - air is drawn in through either side of the copper fins, and up through this opening. The fan is mounted on two small posts which hold it firmly in place.

Side A:
From the side you can appreciate just how small this heatsink really is. The DC1U-B01 heatsink measures just 14mm tall, with the entire package (fan and heatsink) coming in under the 30mm mark. The heatsinks clip is stiff, and needs a screwdriver to be engaged onto the socket tabs. The shroud is held in place with four screws and leaves about 8mm worth of fins exposed on either side.

Side B:
The copper base measures 4mm thick and is undercut 1mm for socket cam arm clearance. The copper fins are about 0.3mm thick and spaced 1mm apart to ensure good airflow. One of the nice benefits of the 8mm tall skived heatsink is that the fins are so thin they pose little resistance to air. There is no solder joint since the fins and base are one and the same.
Heatsink Base:
The base has been face milled perfectly flat, and is very smooth and shinny as you can no doubt see. The base is undercut for clearance of the sockets cam arm.
