Vantec CCK-6027D HSF Review (Page 1)

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. So come join Mike as he takes a look at this new cooler and lets see if it was successful.

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. But then there came a new beast to the streets, and it was called Thunderbird. Since then, Vantec has been getting right into the middle of the heatsink wars, and has been doing so at a very reasonable price.

With the advent of the copper coolers, Vantec again took off the kid gloves and got to work producing some good quality coolers, and again at a reasonable price. Their line of coolers will normally sell for US$5-10 less than the competition. And in doing so, they are still performing at the same level as higher priced units.

While these goals are easy to attain, we'll be looking at the hard numbers when it comes to cooling. Can it be a smaller sink and still maintain the very good cooling of other Vantec units? Let's find outÂ…
