Vantec CCK 6027D vs CCK 6035D Heatsinks
review by david, 25 January 2002


All-copper heatsink solutions are fast becoming one of the favorites on the market, taking advantage of copper's ability to conduct heat better than plain old aluminium. In the beginning, copper heatsinks were far and few in between, possibly due to the problems manufacturers had with coming up with a decent design, as well as problems with copper being very malleable. The majority of copper heatsinks nowadays all incorporate a few basic similarities, including high fin density and the usage of a high CFM fan needed to be able to push sufficient air through the tightly packed fins of the heatsink.

A couple of weeks ago, I received the Vantec CCK 6027D and the CCK 6035D from Vantec USA. Vantec is one of the few companies providing CPU cooling solutions that is not located in Taiwan, but in the United States of America. While not being as well known as other companies such as Swiftech or Alpha, Vantec is rapidly becoming one of the premiere names in CPU cooling solutions.

My apologies to Vantec for the lateness in this review as I had been having problems getting a stable system running.

With the introductions done, lets take a quick look at the specifications of the heatsinks in question.
