Anyone know of place online you can get a hunk of copper like that? I wanna design just a plain old air cooled unit but nobody in town has a chunk of copper like that one. Actually, I only need it to be 3/4" thick. Hmm.....I can track down aluminum, maybe ill just use a copper baseplate and the rest of the heatsink will be aluminum.
Hmm...scratch that idea boys. Im gonna make me a home made air cooled HS unit for a graphics card (which one, unno..try it out on a cheapie TNT2 that I dont care if I ruin). Im gonna dub my lil project, PIN FIN technology..haha. Anyways, I have some free time and about 7 bux worth of materials to play around with. That should allow me to make 8 HS for the chips and one core heatsink/fan unit.
