My System Specs

Default

The Fans (well actually the Air the Fans Move) are what wick the heat away from the Sink. Having a better material will help improve the amount and speed at which it is transfered. If you look at the thermal properties of Metals you will see that Silver is Above Pure copper by a good fraction. The more efficent the material the higher transfer possible. Though we are limited to what the Thermal Transfer in Air is as well, which is why higher speed fans do better, because it becomes a Volume issue at that point too.

Mind you my mind isn't sharp today so I might have something wrong here lol.

I do read a lot on Thermal Properties and Dynamics, but thats in my spare time hahah. So I might be a bit off.
