what is the heatsink made of because I want to get a Coollaboratory Liquid Pro

More about : h100i heatsink material

The heatsink is made of copper.

Uhm no.
H110i's radiator is made of Aluminium. But that would not affect in any way as they it is factory sealed with liquid.
Though the heat exchanger is copper

Coollaboratory liquid pro is a TIM. Why would he put it on the rad?

Well the heatsink for liquid cooling setups is the rad. So..

Seriously you want to argue about that? It doesn't matter. He asked about a TIM (Thermal Interface Material) so he clearly meant the CPU block not the rad.

Also the rad is a Heat Exchanger and the block is a heat sink (technically still a heat exchanger).

No thanks, I don't want to argue about this as it would be pointless.
I was going according to the words he used
He asked about the Heatsink
According to the article you attached
"Water cooling can be used to cool many computer components, but especially the CPU. Water cooling usually uses a CPU water block, a water pump, and a heat exchanger (usually a radiator with a fan attached)."
The Radiator definitely acts as a Heatsink and the CPU water block acts as a heat exchanger.

See this sentence that you literally just quoted.

Also these two articles that detail the difference between the two

"In electronic systems, a heat sink is a passive heat exchanger that cools a device by dissipating heat into the surrounding medium." efficiently defines why a Radiator is a Heatsink (it is dissipating heat to the surroundings)

AND

"A heat exchanger is a piece of equipment built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another."
efficiently describes CPU block which is actually transferring heat and not DISSIPATING.

P.S- It doesn't need to be that difficult.

The sentence "a heat exchanger.." is defining heat dissipation to be exact.
You may call a radiator a heat exchanger but you can never say a CPU block is a Heatsink.
