    Any of those would do, Aluminium has lower thermal conductivity but dissipate the heat to air quicker, copper has higher thermal conductivity but dissipate the heat to air slower.

    By the way there's next to no airflow around the heatpipe so if too much heat was dissipated the hot air will just store inside your machine and make the situation worse, so remember not to put too many of those unless you install a small fan or an external cooler to help the airflow.

    So copper would be better then?

    Most people will go for copper.

    Profiting from the marginal design of the product. Gotta love capitalism!

    not much, i literally did the same thing, and because there is no extra circulation it mearly builds up heat into the air cavaty, so in the short term it takes longer to heat up, but then it keeps the heat longer. this is why added the few small blowers to my machine, but the airflow needs to flow from the bottom of the case out the back.

    It will drop temps about 2-5C depending on what you're doing. What its doing is adding surface area to the heat transfer pipes which allows more heat to dissipate. While the heat will be in that area like aduy mentioned, it does move it away from the components which is the important thing.

    Do you have any pictures of the installed heatsinks? Are they custom built for the 9150 by xoticpc?

    No pics yet but hoping to get them added soon. We just put up the option today. They arent made specifically for the NP9150, we actually offer it on many models we offer.

    you guys should offer a custom back cover that provides better air-flow its gonna provide better temp drops and i am sure many of us will be willing to pay ~80 for it
