the solid copper one will cool better, but the alcu will do just fine if you wanna save money.

How much differnce will it be? Because originally, I was thinking of the XP-120. Then, I saw the 7700 but it wasn't that much of a temp difernce and was cheaper so I sticked with that but I don't know to get the copper or aluminum/copper. The AC is cheaper and at the same time more light. The only reason I don't want the copper is becuase of it cracking. The mobo cracks, Your PC's dead!

ive never ever heard of anyones mobo cracking from a heatsink. if you want teh best performanse go with the cu, i mean its that simple. the xp-120 will cool better than wither and is extremely lightr to boot. but if you want zalman and can spend the money get the cu, if you wanna save some get the alcu, they both perform way above stock.
