Thermalright SK6+ Copper Heatsink Review


Looking back at the hundreds of copper heatsinks to have crossed over the FrostyTech test bench, I would have to say that the Thermalright coolers are among the most intricate. With their different sized wire fan clips, complicated copper fins, and thick machined copper base plates, the Thermalright heatsinks just look like they mean business. And matched with the right fan they often do...

In this review we'll be testing out the now vintage Thermalright SK6+ to see how it handles the 100W synthetic temperature test alongside a long list of current, and brand new Socket A heatsinks.

Heatsink Specsheet:
  • Model: SK6+
  • Fan: 5200RPM, 12V, 0.13A
  • Fan Dim: 25x60x60mm
  • Heatsink Dim: 74x65x33mm (W/O fan)
  • HS Material: Copper Sheet and Copper plate.
  • Weight: 382 g
Sold By: www.thermalright.com
Heatsink Audio Sample Included.

For the purposes of these tests we have decided to use a mainstream fan instead of a 60x60x25mm 7000RPM monster.

The simple fact is that most people have told us they prefer quiet heatsinks over loud ones. Well, actually, most people tell us they want the thermal performance of those big loud fans without the noise.... and that their girlfriends/wives are threatening to move out unless they get a quieter computer.

So pay attention everyone, we're going to test out the Thermalright SK6+ with a 60x60x25mm 5200 RPM fan that won't drive you crazy with absurd noise levels. In fact, the Zalman GM1206PTVX.AF only generates 50 dBA under power. Pretty good all things considered.
