    They are just cut so you dont need to dremel your own heatsink

    For mine, I was able to keep my 1070 at 54c with full fan, but it was all copper and 5 heatpipes

    I would like to know if it's the extra heatpipes that make the main difference on these heatsinks or is it the all copper plate cover?

    Heatpipes transport the heat from a to b

    The exchanger is where you want the most mass. Generally, aluminum is good but copper can hold more kinetic energy.

    Then Obviously the air carries it off the exchanger
