    weird idea

    i figure that copper is a better heat conductor than aluminum. so what about putting a copper cold plate on the bottom of a aluminum heatsink to absorb the heat then distribute it equally to the heatsink giving you a better heatsink heat disipation rate. is this logical and or possible?

    all layers with heatsink paste of course!

    Sounds logical enough to me but you are still talking about using an aluminum HS.

    Thats a cool lookin HS/fan setup but what do you use it on? it looks too big for the CPU.

    That's an Alpha 3125 for Slot 1 SECC format CPUs.

    That's the Alpha P3125s, originally intended for Slot1 P2/P3 and Celeron CPU's. With a bit of handiwork it'll also fit on a Slocket (like OCshoot did)
