The AF7 Pro can't really be compared to the TRUE. One is an extreme budget cooler while the other is just the opposite.

Ok well if the TRUE was a 10 and the intel stock cooler was a 0 I'd say it was 5-6

Because copper weighs more than aluminum. If they made the TRUE out of all copper and the same size, it would either bend or break the motherboard due to it's weight.

That's why that Thermaltake make the XP-120 out of aluminum, but when they made it out of copper it was the XP-90C which of course is 90mm compared to 120mm.

Weight of XP-120 = 370g
Weight of XP-90C = 690g
That's a 54% increase of weight(from 370g to 690g) for a decrease of 30% in size (from 120mm to 90mm). But, of course, copper dissipates more heat and although its smaller, it outperforms the XP-120.

If they made a fullsize 120mm copper heatsink, based off of those ratios of size to weight, figuratively the 120mm copper heatsink would weigh 897g! I don't think a motherboard could handle almost 900 grams, which is very close to 2lbs.

You could do that....

.................................or instead of going through all that trouble just get a TRUE or if that's not enough then watercooling.
