Globalwin CAK38 Copper Heatsink
Right now the Globalwin CAK38 is one of the top-tier copper socket
A coolers available. It weighs in at 450g and comes with an almost unbeatable
6800 RPM Delta 60mm fan. But wait, there are lots of sold copper coolers
available that can boast the similar stats, what makes the CAK38 any
different, or any better?
Sure it comes with a high-speed 60mm fan, but any heatsink
manufacturer can add one of those to boost performance. What really makes the
CAK38 stand out from the rest is the one piece copper fin design. Looking at the
fins and the base it's obvious that the entire heatsink portion has been cut
from a solid block of copper. So far, no other heatsink we've looked at can
boast that feature.

those same copper fins that undoubtedly prove to be the roughest points on the
entire heatsink. The cutting process used to carve the 23 fins from 29mm of
solid copper is more than evident. In fact the quality and finish of the CAK3's
fins is downright poor.
Fin spacing remains consistent at about 2mm (the width of
the cutting blade). Fin thickness however, varies from 1.25mm to 0.75mm
thick for the most part, with some fins going down to 0.20mm thickness.
To say fin thickness is inconsistent would be a
serious understatement. Tooth marks from the saw blade are visible on most of
