Information on Frostytech's test methodology is available here.
The Heatsink Fan:
The 70x70x15mm fan spins at 3500RPM behind a fan guard that is made of plastic and slightly domed - not as good as a metal grill, but sufficient to keep wires out. The fan draws power from a standard 3-pin motherboard fan header that supports RPM monitoring. Note the nice gold plating on the impeller! Classy!

Heatsink Top:
With the fan removed from the body of the Evercool K802-715CA heatsink we can see two independent sections of stacked copper fins, separated by 10mm of space for the clip and its workings. Each fin measures about 29x35mm in size. The copper fins are all soldered directly to the base plate, and a plenum of 4mm is maintained above them.

Heatsink Side A:
The copper base of this hefty 516 gram heatsink is 6mm thick, and measures 50x74mm. Each of the 52 copper fins (per row) on the K802-715CA are separated by 1mm of space, and are ~0.1mm thick.

Heatsink Side B:
The chrome plated fan shroud keeps the fan solidly in place, and the clip where it is supposed to be. The clip rests on an extra bar of copper which has been soldered to the base of the heatsink - perhaps not the best way to keep weight down or improve the K802-715CA's thermal effectiveness.

Heatsink Base:
The 6mm thick copper base plate has a sanded finish which translates into a surface roughness of ~48 microinches. The surface is pretty flat in both axis, but not perfectly so. Along its length there is a very slight curvature which is noticeable against an engineers straight edge. Some good quality thermal compound will easily fill the void created at the edges of the processor IHS.
