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

The stock HS will prolly work better, because there is more distance between the fins so there's no need for high CFM to get the air at the base.

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.
