Default Sandy Bridge Heatsinks - quick question

My family member happens to have an extra intel stock heatsink from a 2600K he got. I was just wondering if it is bigger or otherwise different from the heatsinks for lower end intel SB CPUs, such as the i3-2100 or even the SB pentiums

The 2100's have a non-copper base, but other then that, the heatsink itself is the same. You may be able to achieve a few temp difference from it, as well as the faster fan.

^^^From what I have seen they all look the same, but as mentioned above the higher end cpu's have a copper core in the heatsink, whereas the low end ones are all aluminum.
