A new solid copper heat sink using a relatively quiet embedded fan, from Millennium Thermal Solutions, the "Millennium Copper Glaciator", will soon be available with a projected target price of around $35.
Joe Citarella at Overclockers.com previewed this new HSF back in March.

It looks like the final version should be available for purchase around mid-May. Pre-release ordering might still be possible, but I'm not positive on this. More information about the "Millennium Copper Glaciator" is available at the MTS site.

For all those disgusted over the flap with the Thermosonic Thermoengine, here is possibly a more efficient option for around the same price.
I've pre-ordered a “Glaciator” myself, as the preview of this HSF’s performance by Joe at Overclockers.com seemed pretty impressive, especially when one considers that several of the current "top performing" HSF's (Core, N/C Silverado, and the MC 462) are going for twice the cost of the "Millennium Copper Glaciator".

I agree that the Silverado and MC 462 are the top HSFs, but in no way is the "core". It plain sucks. Just looks fancy, but it wastes tons of surface area for better airflow, but it just isn't adding up. Go look at a review of it and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Yes, I know of the millenium. It seems to be a decent HSF, especially for the price.

You're confusing the OCZ Gladiator with the MTS Glaciator. Both are copper sinks, but the fin size, fan positioning and overall weight are some of the differences in the two sinks. Besides being manufactured by different companies

I plan on using a non-conductive shim with the cooler to be on the safe side. The preview mentioned a weight of around 800 grams. Non-conductive shims are available for around $9.00 at the Cooler Guys site.

I'm gonna have to say my Alpha Pal-6035 is pretty darn good with a black label Delta. As you may already know from my bragging. Hey somebody has to brag around here! :-)
