Evercool ND19715CA Copper-Core Heatsink Review
We've reviewed heatsinks with similar appearances as the unit we are testing today but so far each version has managed
to remain a little bit different than the others. Some versions came equipped
with copper additions, others without. In this case, the Evercool ND19715CA sports a 'chewy' copper center.
A chocolate bar the Evercool ND19715CA isn't, but with a 35mm diameter copper disc embedded
into the aluminum base we should hopefully see some interesting thermal
While the ND19715CA isn't a true silent heatsink since it
measures in at over 40dB, it does manage to operate will low-to-moderate noise levels making
it potentially ideal for home computers.
One of the other nice aspects of this heatsink is
that the outward slope of the fins makes it less likely that closely placed
capacitors around the processor socket will cause any interference. A little
thing perhaps, but having to bend capacitors to install a heatsink is never a
good idea no matter how you look at it.

are dealing with a primarily extruded-aluminum heatsink, improving thermal
conductivity is an important consideration. The base has the largest
impact on this, and so in addition to being machined nice and flat,
Evercool have also added a copper insert.
The insert is positioned within a rise in the aluminum
base, though we do not know how thick it is. In past examples, we have seen copper base plates soldered,
or even bolted onto the base with drastically different results. To find out
how the Evercool ND19715CA handles the job read on...
