I believe copper conducts heat faster and aluminum dissapates (sp) it better. See how the contact point is copper and then it has aluminum fins to dissapate the heat? So take that into consideration when you're buying it.

The copper version cools better yes. I have it and I highly reccomend it. It's only slightly more expensive that the AlCu also.
