Default Video Cards & Copper Heatsinks

Are there any 8800GTS 512MB cards with a copper heatsink....or do only ATI cards use copper heatsinks.

I would think for the price of a good video card, a copper heatsink is not asking to much?

They are not 100% copper, but the reference coolers contain copper.

I think some of those copper coolers have aluminum in them, which isn't a very good metal for cooling

I think the Zalman VF1000 would work. techPowerUp! Review :: Zalman VF1000 LED & RHS88 :: Page 1 / 5
