We're back with another heatsink review! This
time up on the chopping block is the Thermal Right SK-6 socket
cooler. One of the most common traits of coolers now a days is
the use of copper as the material of the HS itself. The SK-6
does not deviate from this, but does do something different in the
the construction of its all copper beauty.
One of our new sponsors,
Heatsink Factory, sent over this fine unit along with a 38 CFM
blasting black label Delta fan. With high expectations from
numerous areas of the cooling scene, this cooler looks to deliver a
Here are some specs of this cooler:
For use with all socket based CPUs except the
70 fins on this unit!
64mm L x 72mm W x 31.6mm H (top of heat sink)
64mm L x 64mm W x 31.6mm H (bottom of heat sink)
Delta Fan: 38CFM, 46.5 dBA, 6,800 RPM !
The immediate impression of this cooler
is the insanely huge packaging. It comes in a brown box that
is about the length of my ratpad. From what I gather, this
protects the delicate copper unit from obtaining any nicks or dents
The box contains the heatsink, 2 pairs
of fan clips (60mm x 25mm fans, while the other larger set is for a
60mm x 38mm fan), set of thermal pads, and the motherboard clip.
It probably would have been a lot better if they at least included
thermal grease. Not likely we'll be using the thermal pad at
From the above picture, you may notice
the odd way the fins are attached to the base. Instead of
having a complete unit mold, the 70 fins are soldered onto the base
in interleaving patterns. There are a set of two holes on each
side for the fan clips to attach too, a little strange to have it
come unassembled, but definitely something new. No screws to
bother with, everything is straight forward.
