Vantec CCK-6035D Perspectives

The Fan:
The good old Delta 6800RPM fans seems to be mounted on just about every single heatsink we've looked at in the last month! It's loud, it's fast, and it works really well at keeping any heatsink nice and cool. The 7-bladed Delta fan is 25mm in height and rated at about 6800 RPM. It connects to the power via a 3-pin jack (pass through cable also included) and comes protected with a wire finger guard.

Heatsink Top:
So many thin fins to keep a processor cool. The fins are all interlocked with one another to form a stable unit. The base of the thin copper fins are soldered to the thicker copper base. The shroud that the fan screws into is not copper, but rather anodized aluminum. The fins are each spaced about 1mm apart except for the clip trough which is 6mm wide.

Side A:
Anyone could be forgiven for thinking the shroud on the CCK-6035D was made from copper as is the rest of the heatsink. To save weight, and decrease costs, Vantec have opted to install an anodized aluminum shroud. It has the same effect by channeling air into the center of the heatsink. Since the joints along the bottom edge are somewhat loose it would have only marginal cooling capabilities were it made from copper.

Side B:
There are 17 sets of thin fins on each side of the main clip. Each of the fins are spaced about 1mm apart and they are all soldered to the copper base. The fins themselves are 31mm in height and roughly 0.2mm thick. The clip is really easy to engage and hinged in two places. No screw driver is necessary, the thumb clip is more than sufficient. The top of fins are spaced 3mm from the base of the Delta fan.

Heatsink Base:
At first glance the base of the CCK-6035D looks burnt... which in fact it was in order for the base to be soldered to the fins. The two holes in the base related to a copper spacer on the other side and would seem to relate to two pins there. The base is perfectly flat and quite smooth, although it is not polished.

Time to test out the Vantec CCK-6035D on the Frosty Synthetic Temperature Test platform and compare it with several other of our reference heatsinks, and most importantly the Thermalright SK6
