    Vantec CCK-6027D CPU Cooler

    Introduction

    A couple months back Vantec sent me one of their copper 6035D coolers, which I reviewed on what was then Systemlogic.net. It was one of the best coolers I have reviewed in strict terms of performance. The aluminum case with all copper base and fins made for a very strong and very secure cooler mechanism. However, the cooler came equipped with the very powerful, but equally annoying Delta 38cfm fan on it. This provided a very powerful air-cooling mechanism for the heat sink, but it also supplied a LOT more noise than the general public wanted in their case. As a response to this Vantec released a second gen. copper heat sink along the same lines, the CCK-6027D.

    The newer revision was designed to give a similar performance to the 6035, while doing it in a slightly more attractive package and with a much quieter fan. How well will it work remains to be seen? Lets get on with the details now.

    Design/Construction

    The Vantec CCK-6035D is an extremely common cooler that I'm sure most people have seen at some point in time. The 6027 is very similar to that, with a few exceptions; first off, this version has a notably slimmer profile, the metal sink it about half an inch shorter. Secondly, that takes about 40 grams (a little over 10% of the 6035D's mass) off the overall weight of the sink, which is very useful, as the 6035D was an EXTREMELY heavy heat sink (at least as far as I'm concerned.) Then for looks they swapped the aluminum housing the 6035D had in favor of a thinner copper one, just to complete the copper look on the whole sink. The last thing they swapped out was the fan, the exchanged the Delta black label (38cfm, 48 dBA) for a much quieter fan, (30cfm, 39 dBA). This means that it will appeal to a lot more people who can't stand the noise that a delta makes.

    When you get the 6027, it come packed much like every other sink Vantec puts out, packaged in their classic blue box, with a little pack of silicone goop inside. The only notable change is that the 6027 comes bubble wrapped due to its smaller size compared to the Vantec box. This helps protect the sink from damage in transportation.
