If you're looking for the largest heatpipe equipped heatsink, the Coolermaster Hyper 6 is it. We had the chance to switch out our stock Intel P4 cooler, to this 6 heatpipe powered monster. Let's see how it does...

This is the first heatsink that came in it's own suitcase. Here are some specs:

Socket Type AMD K8 (socket 754/940) and Intel P4 (socket 478)
Heat Sink Dimension 96x82x120 mm
Heat Sink Material 6 heat pipes + 100% Copper stacked fin with copper base
Fan Dimension 80x80x25 mm
Fan Speed 1400 ~ 3000 rpm
Fan Life Expectance 40,000 hrs
Bearing Type Sleeve bearing
Voltage Rating 6 ~ 12V
Noise Level 19 ~ 24 dB(A)
Connector 4 Pin (Power Input), 3 Pin (Speed Detection)
Application P4 all frequencies and K8

Something very disturbing is the fact that the weight of this unit is not listed at all anywhere. I compared the weight in my hand against my previous tested Scythe Kamikaze unit. It seemed slightly heavier, which kind of scared of me as the Scythe was already way over Intel recommended specs. However, it's a new toy, let's play.

The box comes with the heatsink itself, a clear speed adjustable fan, retention brackets, backplate, bag of screws/thermal paste and the instruction sheet.

If any manufacturer needs an example of how NOT to write an instruction sheet should get a copy of this one. In the above picture, you'll notice that installation pictures are smaller than the size of a dime. How in the world is someone supposed to see how to install this thing? The pictures are fuzzy too; so of course, once again, we have to wing it...
