1 C
2 A, B, and C (also for reasonable noise level)
3 A
4 A, B, and C (and again reasonable noise level)
5 No expectations (I've seen poor performing all-copper HSF's).
6 No expectations (I've used all aluminum heatsinks for overclocking but copper-aluminum is better).

1)b - copper
2)a - good conductivity
3)b - no
4)a+b+c (+d - noise levels :wink: )
5)a, but not at the expense of b :wink:
6)b

That's my answers... but some of your questions could be worded differently... e.g. 4 & 5.

ditto spitfire except i have used a cu-al heatsink

Also doesnt system stability and higher overclock go hand in hand...i mean better system stability lets you overclock higher.

1. A monster mobo mounted Swiftech MCX-462.
1a. Hybrid copper aluminium. Thick copper base, embedded aluminium pins.

2. I don't. It was expensive.

3. Yes. See 1.

4. Factors: Ability to mount a 80mm fan of any type. Secure mounting mechanism. Large mass for superior cooling under any conditions.

5&6. I expect and get a Stable high Overclock without haivng to use an insanely loud fan. he thick copper base sucks away the heat, and the aluminium pins that act as 'fins' release heat well.

Thats true to an extent i guess.
But push anything high enough and it will get instability.

And whats the point of an overclock if its unstable?

thats my point if it makes the system stable you will be able to hit overclocks that you before would get bsods with.

6. a-- ? wtf. still can be a hell of a good heatsink and let you overclock plenty...

Your survey seems more than a little skewed. Are you trying to get a particular result of some sort?
