Information on Frostytech's test methodology is
The 120x120x25mm fan is held in place on
the Scythe Andy Samurai Master with a pair of springy wire clips. The fan spins at
a low 1200RPM, and is powered by a standard 3-pin
fan header. With the fan removed we can see the staggering of
the 6mm diameter copper heatpipes that thread through the aluminum fins. The
body of the Andy Samurai Master is 125x100x50mm. Its aluminum fins are
arranged 3-to-1 pattern for full length and short, so fin density around the six
heatpipes is maintained.
the overlapping fins shown at right the "Infinity Interleave Fin Structure". Every
fourth fin is a different width, some 26mm and others 125mm wide. The voids
between the aluminum fins are meant to aide slower airflow moving
through the cooler with as little resistance as possible. Each aluminum
fin is 0.25mm thick, and fins are spaced 3.25mm or 1.25mm respectively. The
bulk of the Andy Samurai Master heatsink is 53mm above the base of the cooler.
The extruded aluminum base doubles as the support frame for the different
mounting brackets. Note how the 6mm diameter heatpipes are staggered 15mm as they
enter the fin array from the base where they are packed edge-to-edge.
The six heatpipes are soldered between the
aluminum extrusion and a 2mm thin copper base plate below.The copper pad
at the bottom of Scythe's Andy Samurai Master heatsink measures a
broad 50x52mm, and has a smooth polished finish. The base is generally very flat.
The extruded aluminum section above the copper base
provides rigidity and a place for the mounting clips to transfer force
directly onto the CPU core.
