Coolermaster DP5-5F11 Heatsink Review

Now we've always found Coolermaster to make some pretty good quality heatsinks, but like all coolers, what was once good can become dated rather quickly.

The DP5-5F11 is nearing the end of its' product life cycle as newer, and increasingly hotter AMD processors are released. Sitting at 25mm high and ~50mm in width there's not much it can really do to compete anymore. There are just too many bigger heatsinks with faster and noisier fans that would suit a 800 or 1.13GHz chip much better. That is not to say it is completely obsolete however... but before we go any further, some specs.

  • Model: DP5-5F11
  • Delta 50mm fan, 4500RPM 9CFM, 31dBa.
  • Fan Dim: 10x50x50mm, 12V, 0.15A
  • FHS Dimensions: 35x50x53mm
  • Material: extruded aluminum
  • Made & Sold by: Coolermaster
  • Cost: $10CDN

Coolermaster DP5-5F11 Perspectives

The Fan:
It's a small Delta fan and it's very quiet. This 7-bladed fan puts out a very low 9CFM worth of airflow. With a rating like that you begin to realize what class of processor this heatsink should be attach to. The fan rotates at 4500RPM and plugs directly into a motherboard fan header.

Side A:
For all intensive purposes the base is 4mm thick, though it does go up to 6mm at the corners. Two little edges are designed to keep the heatsink from being improperly positioned (a guess?). Each of the nine central fins is 1mm thick, 19mm high, and spaced 2.25mm apart.

Heatsink Base:
The Coolermaster originally came with a green phase change material thermal pad. In all the times we've seen this types of pads previously, the heatsink always operated a degree or so cooler once they were removed and some good thermal goo applied. As with just about every extruded heatsink we look at, the base is domed inward very slightly.

Time to test out the Coolermaster DP5-5F11 heatsink on the Frosty Synthetic Temperature Test platform and compare it with several current reference heatsinks.
