    Copper Shims - CR9837 98.7% Pure Copper

    I have thousands of small copper shims for sale - perfect for copper modding processors, chip-sets, graphics cards, memory, hard drives, micro-controllers, rectifiers, you name it.

    These copper shims are cut from the highest quality copper one can buy commercially.
    There is no such thing as 100% copper so please do not ask for something which does not exist.
    Copper is an element extracted from other minerals, and cannot be made in any form above 98.7% outside of a chemical laboratory (electrolytic copper - 99.5% pure - not available to the public)


    The standard size is 16mm x 16mm x 0.66mm

    I can cut any size/shape shim you want out of 1mm thick copper.

    0.40mm, 0.45mm, 0.50mm, 0.55mm, 0.60mm thick copper is available only in quantities of 50 or less, and costs the same as 0.66mm thick copper in any quantity purchased.

    Quantity: 500 16mm x 16mm x 0.66mm shims are $400.00
    Quantity: 1000 16mm x 16mm x 0.66mm shims are $750.00

    Custom Size/Shape:
    (Anything up to 16cm x 12cm x 0.66mm thick
    ): $0.50 per square CM of material used

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If you want to purchase copper shims, you need to specify EXACTLY what thickness you want, and what dimensions you want.

    Here is an example, please follow:
    (standard)

    3 shims 16mm x 16mm and 0.66mm thick

    (custom)
    3 shims 20mm x 25mm and 0.55mm thick
    1 shims 25mm x 25mm and 0.40mm thick

    The maximum thickness of my copper shims are 0.66mm thick. I can provide any thickness from 0.40mm all of the way through 0.66mm, and any overall dimension from 10mm x 10mm all of the way up to 120mm x 120mm

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    All of my prices are shipped prices (USPS ground in the continental USA)
    I DO NOT SHIP TO APO's or MILITARY ADDRESSES
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    LIVE OUTSIDE OF USA? - Send me a personal message and we can work shipping charges out

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    PAYMENT CAN BE MADE IN THE FORM OF:
    CASH/CHECK/U.S. POSTAL MONEY ORDER/PAYPAL


    Payment works as follows:
    You send me payment, and an address to ship to, and I will ship the copper shim(s) out to you within one business day.
    I do not care how much heatware or feedback you have. That is how I do business. I never ship anything without receiving payment first.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I have sold over 2000 copper shims and have never had a complaint

    I have also bought/sold over $10,000 worth of merchandise on this forum


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I am not looking for any trades


    Thanks for looking, I look forward to doing business with you

    Very interested, but what's the application ? I don't think I can just place one between existing heatsink and CPU/GPU. And if so does it need soldering or just some adhesive

    Copper shims are used to replace thermal pads, which can be present on processor heatsinks, graphics card heatsinks, memory heatsinks, etc.

    Copper transmits heat from the processor to its heatsink more efficiently than any thermal pad can.

    You need to use thermal compound/adhesive to bond the copper shim to the heatsink, and then use thermal compound to interface between the copper shim and the processor.

    It is a proven method of maximizing the cooling potential of any heatsink fitted with thermal pads.

    Holy **** K-TRON, where the hell have you been these last few years? :p

    Anyway, I've bought copper shims from this guy before to mod my old laptop; you just stick it between your CPU die surface and heatsink, with thermal compound applied to both sides, and put it all back together. Please don't take a soldering iron to your CPU. :p

    in the pictures the shims appear rough textured, are they polished to a mirror or will I receive them with scratches etc.

    That would have absolutely zero impact on its performance/efficiency, if you are using the thermal compound correctly it will fill whatever tiny groves are in the copper and provide 100% surface contact.

    It's going to be wedged between a thermal pad and a processor of some sort, i don't think it matters if it's aesthetically pleasing.

    okay then by your logic I should take some 20 grit sand paper and take it to my CPU die and have no negative consequences? They polish these to a mirror finish for a reason, saying its only a looks thing is not what I am getting at.

    They're quite smooth, and their effect is noticeable.

    All copper shims will be sanded smooth with 600 grit sandpaper on a sanding block before shipping. They will have a 'sheen' appearance to them.

    And to follow up, thermal paste must be used when performing a copper mod. You can use thermal paste on either side of the copper shim, or use thermal adhesive on the side of the shim you are bonding to the heatsink, and ordinary thermal paste on the side of the shim which faces the CPU die.
