why they dont make the entire heatsionk copper or silver(evenbetter heeatconducter but expensive)

is a mystery



That 5870 looks mighty fine compared to the stock board, but I can't say the same for the 5850...

I like the idea of having the heat pipes have direct contact with the chips but what is keeping us from having a solid copper base on our heatsinks?  There may be some crucial thing that i'm ignorant about here but so far all i've seen is direct contact copper is adding big change in heatpipe design.
