    Have any of you seen or used this Copper Spacer before?

    Here's something else that threw me. They recommend to use thermal compound on both sides of the spacer.

    S p e c i f i c a t i o n

    Professionally CNC stamped and rolled, for use with Duron or Thunderbird

    --Designed to provide stability and better heat transfer with AMD s462/A
    when used with any after market heat sink and water-cooling applications.
    --Made from a coil of high-grade copper alloy and stamped twice for uniformity.
    The shim will provide a perfect platform to ensure your CPU core will not get broken or cracked by any application you might decide on.
    --Be sure to use thermal grease on both sides of the shim

    IMHO that's certainly overkill, the thermal paste you apply on both sides of that shim will probably only serve to stop it from shifting/sliding in transit.
