-- Thermal Right SK-6 Socket Cooler
-- Price: $46.99 USD (with Delta Fan)
-- 7.03.2001

   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 punch.

   Here are some specs of this cooler:

  • For use with all socket based CPUs except the Pentium 4

  • 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 from transit.

   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 all.

   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.
