Frosty CopperPins Heatsink
There is something about an all copper heatsink that is just magical, almost as if the weight of the material imparts some special kind of value... which in a way it does. When comparing copper to Aluminum, the thermal properties of copper (i.e. thermal conductivity) make copper the better choice of the two metals for cooling operations. So when looking at an all-copper heatsink we're looking at something that automatically seems to be, well... better.
So begins our attempt at constructing a solid-copper pin-type heatsink for PGA or FC-PGA based processors. As always we hope this will inspire the real overclockers out there to give it a shot - get some copper and make their own heatsink...
First thing is first, what is the Frosty CuPins Heatsink for? Answer: a very special Intel Pentium III 500E FC-PGA. What are we making the CuPins out of? Copper, and nothing but copper! What kind of heatsink is the CuPins this going to be: naturally a pin type (110 pins to be exact) with impingement cooling by a small fan.
Let the fun begin :)
