bought me some aluminium today to make big-****d, passively cooled heatsinks. they'll make great VGA/memory/HDD coolers
aluminium is surprisingly very cheap, light and easy to work with (not as hard as copper) and it cools with little airflow as good as (or even better then) copper
I'll start with it Wednesday afternoon.
bar #1 is 120mm * 15mm * 500mm
bar #2 is 40mm * 35mm * 300mm

You gotta make sure that the heat does't pile up underneath the sinks.

started with 'em
with a bandsaw (wipzaag - whatever it's called) it didn't go really well, but with a crappy handsaw I'm cutting much easier through the aluminium
I've been borrowing that handsaw for more then 8 months from the neighbours, lol
I'll get dad's handsaw ( a better one ) and put a new blade on it, it cut like a knife through butter
