Information on Frostytech's test methodology is available here.

The Heatsink Fan:
The 95x95x25mm fan sits above a nice array of copper fins which are soldered to the three copper heat pipes. Noise levels hover around the 48.5 dBA mark at stock speeds. The fan is PWM compliant, so with compatible motherboards fan speed will reduce to 700RPM as the CPU thermal situation dictates. The fan connects via a 4-pin PWM fan header.

Heatsink Top Uncovered:
Each of the three 6mm diameter copper heat pipes intersects the 52 copper fins at equal distances, dispersing the heat from the base evenly across the entire area of the cooling fins. The copper fins occupy a footprint of 95 x 72mm. Each fin measures 0.2mm thick, and is spaced 1.3mm apart. The copper fins are soldered to the heatpipes.

Heatsink Side A:
The three heatpipes are all equal in length to prevent the center of the LS Cable SHS-T700 heatsink from becoming hotter than the outer edges. The 6mm diameter copper heat pipes elevate the cooling fins 30mm above the motherboard, and just 14mm above the CPU base block. A benefit of this design is that exhaust airflow from the fan blows out towards nearby board mounted components.

Heatsink Side B:
The LS Cable SHS-T700 heatsink is a very simple design, but one that we have seen used very successfully by many different heatsink manufacturers. The base block supports the LGA775 mounting clip and is made of aluminum, measuring 40mm square.

Heatsink Side C:
The opposite side of the LS Cable SHS-T700 heatsink. The little plastic Intel clips install in a few moments without the need for tools. The copper fins are only 17mm deep on average. Perhaps a bit too short in the long run?

Heatsink Base:
The aluminum base on the LS Cable SHS-T700 heatsink is 40x40mm in size, with an unfinished extruded surface. The base surface is flat in one axis, and slightly convex in the other. It has not received any machining to improve flatness. Surface roughness is on the order of ~8 microinches, which is considered good. As you can see here, the copper fins are spaced widely apart so there isn't much airflow resistance. The heatsink ships with a pre-applied swatch of white thermal compound.
