Vantec CCK-6027D HSF Review

The Vantec CCK-6035D copper sink was a good unit, but many people want something that has just a bit less volume than the whining Delta 38CFM fan that goes with it. Enter the newest HSF to carry the Vantec name; the CCK-6027D. It was designed to be smaller, lighter and quieter than it's big brother.

Introduction

 

Vantec has been in the business of cooling for quite some time now. They were well known for selling quite a few OEM type fans, and some low to mid-range heatsinks for the Intel processors.
