Aluminium Heat Sink V Copper Heat Sinks for CUP.
If you change from a Aluminium Heat Sink to a copper heat sink for yoru CPU in your tower computer (not the slimeline one) the fat boy model.
How much MORE % better does copper work better than aluminium??

A little. Copper has roughly twice the thermal conductivity of aluminum:
Also use a high silver content thermal compound applied very thin but fully covering the processor core
In practice you will see a very small difference in the operating temperature of the computer. Unless you are running hot it is probably not worth the trouble. Aluminum is generally good enough. Airflow is also at least as important as the metal used in the heatsink.
