    I've search all over but can't find the answers, I stumbled across this thread a while ago, now the question has come back up after seeing a review for the P170SM showing a copper finned cooler, and a P150SM review showing an aluminium cooler...... naturally I want a copper version.... 400w/mk, vs 210w/mk.......... (or maybe I could make one from solid silver..... 429w/mk.... I digress.....)

    I'm looking to answer some questions, I'm hoping the resellers and community can help with...... and I'll post the answers (if I get them:p, in the second post)

    1. Is the cooler picked by the reseller?
    2. or is it model specific (P150SM comes with the Aluminium version, P170SM comes with the Copper?)

    and my other questions are regarding the coolers themselves..

    a. whats the overall size difference (same I assume)
    b. how many fins does the copper and aluminium versions have.
    c how thick are the fins
    d how wide are the air gaps
    e how wide, and how high are the heat pipes at the CPU end (the same I assume)


    Ultimately the temperature will be determined by the fan profile, it may be cooler at the high end, and quieter in-between but it will be minimal if measurable at all, but I still want that copper bling!

    Typically the cooler is per the manufacturer (Clevo), although some resellers offer their own coolers to supplement.

    As for the dimensions, number of fins, etc. - I'm afraid I haven't been able to measure or assess those things. :eek:

    Ok thanks guys, I'll just wait and see what I get....... it's a bit annoying, the P170SM for me, is just to big! but it comes with a 230w PSU, vs 180w, and it (probably) has the copper CPU cooler and its about £40 GBP cheaper.......... I honestly feel like I'm paying more for less, I wouldn't mind if it was £40 more for the P150SM and it had the copper cooler and 230w psu but to pay more and get less......

    Since you are in the UK drop PWNPCS a mail, tell them you want a P150SM but with P170SM PSU and CPU cooler...worth a shot:

    I've had some great contact with PWN so I'll be in touch, although they haven't won any of my business yet, maybe this is their year!
