high conductivity, high heating metals (Cu, Ag, etc) are used to conduct heat away from components (CPU, GPU, etc)

I know that man. But Copper is already expensive. I don't want to know how much it would cost to make it out of silver. I didn't mean the best conductivity wise. I mean the best overall.

It's mostly copper but a bit cheaper.

Should work almost as well and be much cheaper.
