Default Aerocool GT-1000 Gold-Plated Heatsink

As you may have guessed, the entire heatsink is gold plated. This is more of a cosmetic feature, but it doesn't hurt performance either. There are a total of 36 thin copper fins with 3 heatpipes coming up from the thick copper base on each side. This is a typical setup for heatpipe-style coolers. The little black mini-heatsink at the bottom offers no real cooling benefit; as we'll see shortly it has more to do with installation. You'll also find an aluminum shroud surrounding the cooler with mounting holes for 80mm and 92mm fans on both sides. This allows you to place fans on both sides of the GT-1000, though it's not really necessary. Finally, there's also an aluminum carrying handle up top so you don't get your greasy fingers all over that shiny gold (like I did).

And here's the link:
