We have another player in the copper heatsink
field, this time the CCK-6035D from Vantec.
Vantec has made numerous heatsinks and other coolers for the past
few years, and quality is their main concern. We knew it was
time that Vantec came out with a copper cooler of their own to
combat the other big names. Does it perform as well as the
The unit comes in a nice blue box, you
may get a different color. Anyway, the cooler, a 3pin-4pin
adapter and a packet of white thermal grease is included. Here
are some specs on the unit. The fan comes with a 60mm
grill, having clocked this fan spinning up at about 7000 rpm, the
grill is a must. I did notice that this fan was particularly
familiar. We'll check it out later in the review.

The unit is not as heavy as some of the
other copper units we came across. An aluminum cover is placed
over the copper coils. The coils remind me of the interleaving
ones seen on the Thermalright
SK-6. Will this unit compare to the cooling power of the
SK6 due to these interleaving coils?
The clip is longer measuring in at
about a whole inch in height. Pushing this clip down was very
easy, we didn't even have to use a screwdriver.
The bottom of the unit seems to need a
little cleaning, ok maybe a lot of cleaning. We'll leave it at that and won't bother
lapping it clean, but you may want to consider doing it when you
receive the unit. As far as touch goes, there aren't any
grooves or bumps on the bottom.
