Ok just a comment here.....if I don't crack my motherboard with my Noctua d14... you have nothing to be worry about cooler, all true the Pure Copper One from Thermaright .. manufacturer start to put weight bar at the back of the board. Probably more for transport reason. but it does not look that new Cooler will go on diet.

There is very little variation between most heatsinks as far as the nature of the aluminum alloy used.

No, not at all. Copper is an ideal material for heatpipes because it is very easy to deform, and it conducts heat very well. In terms of the design of most modern heatsinks, the heatpipes are actually the most critical components for heat transfer, so it makes sense to construct them out of copper. However, for the fins, Aluminum is actually a very good choice since it is a stronger material than copper, it is much less dense, it is cheaper, and it still has good thermal properties.

To use a crude example, a big block of copper is not nearly as good of a cooler as a finned aluminum heatsink. To be more specific, with heatsinks nowadays, the main critical factors are heat transfer from the CPU to the heatsink, heatpipes, and fin surface area. For the first two, copper is very useful, which is why all high-end heatsinks use copper bases and heatpipes. However, as far as the fins go, surface area is the most important factor, especially since nowadays we tend to pair heatsinks with very large fans. It's very advantageous to use aluminum fins from a practicality perspective, due to the material properties I mentioned above.
One Day I'll multi-quote to get this all done right. Lets not Drag the poor OP all the way off topic. I do tend to disagree with a lot of what you have stated here for fact? But I'd rather you and I have this discussion elsewhere than crap all over this thread. Fair enough?

May I add that aluminum is easier to work with, so you are able to do more complex shape than copper for the same price.

And aluminum resist corrosion too.

Regardless of the thermal properties of the two materials for use in heatsinks, can we all agree that the Hyper 212 Plus is the best heatsink for the OP due to cost / performance?

I don't know enough the AMD board ... but trust the other guy they know what they talk about.

get a WD black 500 will be ok.. 5 years warranty..and ease to RMA.. I think it worth to try one.


For the board ask ST ( souultribunal) do it quick I'm afraid for his mental health... ( go read the Go team go in the folding you will understand ) actually I'm concern about a lot of guy in this folding team
