Vantec FCE-6030D Heat Sink

Is Bigger Always Better?:

I received a new heat sink from VantecUSA, called the FCE-6030D. The first thing I noticed was that is was much smaller than their previous (and very popular) heat sink, the FCE-62540D. Second thing I noticed was how dense the fins were, 32 to be exact. The older model, while bigger, has only 20 fins. Both however include the ever so popular black-label Delta fan (with a chrome finger guard), a 3-to-4 pin adapter, and a small packet of thermal compound.

Personally, before testing, I didn't think this heat sink would perform well at all, however in the end I was quite surprised. I decided to compare it to several other popular heat sinks to see how it measured up.

The actual lineup of coolers is as follows:

  • Vantec FCE-6030D

  • Vantec FCE-62430D

  • GlobalWin WBK38

  • Thermosonic ThermoEngine

I'm not going to go into details about any heat sinks except for the new FCE-6030D. If you want to read about the other heat sinks used in this comparison (along with many others that weren't included), check out the first heat sink comparison, or heat sink roundup 2, or even the copper heat sink comparison.

 

Vantec FCE-6030D:

Like I said before, this heat sink is much smaller than the traditional monsters that we have seen unleashed on the market recently. However a closer look reveals a sleek & efficient design, combining lots of surface area with complete cooling over all the fins. Another wonderful feature is Vantec's user-friendly clip design, you can put this heat sink on & take it off without the need of any tools!
