3 in 1 Pi4 Colorful Heatsink Set for Raspberry Pi 4 and 3B+ 1 Copper and 2 Aluminum
This 3 in 1 heatsink set is designed for Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspberry Pi 3B+ boards. The dimensions of the heatsink fit the dimensions of the chips on the compatible boards. Mounting is simple because these heatsinks come with stickers you can peel off easily. The set comprises of a copper heatsink and a pair of the aluminum heatsink (1 blue and 1 black).
The pictures are for demonstration so that you can see the mounting of the heatsinks on Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspberry Pi 3+. This offer DOES NOT include the Raspberry Pi boards.
Copper Heatsink with Adhesive Sticker
Copper is known for its efficient heat conduction. Due to this property, copper heatsinks are efficient at keeping the CPU cool for a long time through proper heat dissipation. As an experiment, if you expose a piece of copper to one edge, you will notice that the opposite edge also starts heating up quickly. This particular copper heatsink weighs just 3 grams and it comes with an adhesive sticker.
Features of Copper Heatsink
- Efficient thermal conductivity
- Copper is safe from corrosion
- Copper’s melting point is high so it does not expand quickly
- The density of copper is approximately 321 lb/in³
- The tensile strength of copper is approximately 310 MPa
- Best heat management in the case of overclocking
Why Use a Copper Heatsink?
The objective is to absorb the heat from the processor and take it away so that the processor remains cool enough to keep performing at the optimal level. Copper does this job better than alternative metals. Copper spreads the heat taking it away from the source and spreading it to the cooler material, including air.
However, aluminum heatsinks have their distinct characteristics which make them suitable for various processing chips. The 3-in-1 Pi4 Heatsink set gives you the freedom of using multiple heatsinks for optimal performance at any given time. They are tiny in size making it easier to accommodate the setup inside a case.
