soon I'll put my Linux machine back together. I'm wondering what heatsink I should use. I've used my SLK800 before, with a silent 7V fan the CPU got pretty hot: stock speed +40 idle, stressed: dunno. stressed, a temp probe between some fins of the SLK reported 44°
I'm using a Koolance case. the PSU is 300W and has a silent fan at 5v (pretty close to unhearable).
I've got two heatsinks available: my stock 2500+ heatsink with copper base and a V7+ heatsink. both will be used with 60-80mm fan adapter. I'll put a few casefans in the machine, but they'll only push very little airflow. same goes for the CPU fan, it used to be 7V but now I want to give it only 5Volt
so, what HS performs best with little airflow? I think the 2500+ heatsink, because copper heatsinks need a LOT of airflow to work properly... copper doesn't give away like aluminium does

I think the copper will perform better because it has more fins. And I think it will even perform better with the fan-adapter. Just my 2 cents.
