Kyle van HardOCP heeft een review online gezet over de Vantec 6035D heatsink. Deze heatsink is volledig gemaakt van koper en is standaard uitgerust met een 6800rpm fan. Het design van de heatsink is niet opvalled, gewoon een koperen basis waarop 34 plaatjes koper zijn ‘geplakt’. De prestaties van de heatsink zijn goed te noemen, hij blijft net één graad achter bij de beste koeler, de Thermoengine. Zijn werk doet hij dus goed, maar in het clipping mechanisme heeft Kyle niet veel vertrouwen:
My only beef with this heatsink is the clipping mechanism. While it can be operated with no tools, and did fine in our testing, I would not suggest that anyone use this heatsink that moves their case around often. Yes, you LANners know who I am talking about. The pressure that the clip exerted did not leave me feeling confident about it staying on under stresses like a trip in the car. Moving it to the other side of the room would not seem to pose a problem though. While it is much easier to use than the Global Win clip, it seems about as stable though.
Another thing to keep in mind is that this Vantec 6035D comes equipped with its own high CFM fan where as the ThermoEngine does not. You are looking at dropping extra cash on it for the fan upgrade if you want the ThermoEngine the way we have tested it here. With that said, it is pretty obvious that the Vantec 6035D is the best STOCK cooler we have tested even besting the all copper Global Win CAK38 but only by one degree F which is a very small margin. No doubt too that there is a margin of error in our testing that is very possibly a degree or more + or -. Throw that rule at the top six leading HSFs in our testing this month and it will throw the entire group in to a massive mix-up when it comes to "What ifs". My point is here that the coolers are all getting to be so good at what they do, the actual performance difference is getting to be so minute it is hard tell unless you have a graph out comparing them.
