Vantec FCE6010 1U-Heatsink Review
Abstract: Knowing the limitations of a heatsink is important for any application, but doubly so for servers where downtime is just not allowed.

Vantec FCE-6010 Heatsink From All Angles
The Fan:
The fan is the same size as the extrusion on the FCE6010. Both are 10mm thick and roughly 60x60mm. The fan is connected to the motherboard via a 3-pin power connector with RPM monitoring and features a total of 11 blades around a 28mm motor casing.

Heatsink Top:
There really isn't much to this heatsink. A stiff clip (we had a hard time locking it down), a small heatsink extrusion and a fan are about it. On the plus side, the solution is very light weight. The heatsink measures 60mm across.

Side B:
The base is 3mm thick and is designed with a step for socket clearance. The fins on the FCE6010 are spaced about 1.0mm apart, and are 7mm in height. Each fin is about 0.5mm thick at the tip, and slightly wider at the base.
Heatsink Base:
The base finish of the FCE6010 is less than ideal with not much to go for it in terms of absolute flatness or smoothness (it's a bit domed). Use of a good quality thermal compound would be highly recommended.
