Dynatron DC1206BM-V Copper 1U P4 Heatsink Review

Doesn't this thin copper heatsink just look cool? The Dynatron DC1206BMV is made entirely from skived copper; it's low to the ground and cooled by a tiny 10mm thick fan so it can be used in 1U socket 478 Pentium 4 servers.... or maybe even a small formfactor cube PC like the Shuttle SS50.

The microfins are made by the skive process we are all so familiar with now, and knowing that is made for a 1U Pentium 4 server gives it a bit of extra clout. Mostly, the "DC1206BMV" just sounds like it should be a fast car - like a BMW.

The question of course is how well does this 1U server Pentium 4 heatsink really perform? We'll answer that question in just a second, but first we're going to take a closer look into this full-copper heatsink from Dynatron. Dynatron if you remember, were the first to introduce skive heatsinks into the mainstream cooling market, and FrostyTech was there to offer the first reviews. This time around we will be comparing the Model BMV against some regular Pentium 4 socket 478 heatsinks because frankly, we have no other socket 478 1U heatsinks to compare it with yet... but some are on the way (sorry they are still secret).

Heatsink Audio Sample Included.

With a lanky m478 heatsink such as this comes a custom heatsink retention mechanism which must first be installed on the 1U server motherboard before the Dynatron DC1206BMV can be set in place on the Pentium 4 processor. Everything that you need to do this is included along with the heatsink, so it is only a matter of pulling out the motherboard, installing the HSRM and plastic backplate, and then putting everything back into the case. Such processes are a bit of a pain with out-of-the-box servers, but if you are building your own this doesn't add much time to the entire process.

The clipping mechanism is pretty sturdy, so you should even be able to get away with leaving the heavy copper heatsink installed during moderate moving attempts. I would pull it out if you wanted to Fedex or UPS the server just to be safe.

Speaking of which this heatsink could also be a good addition to those small form factor cube systems which are continuing to increase in popularity.
