im using a CoolerMaster Hyper 212, it works really great tbh. (Core i5 9600k, on stress test not overclocked, it stays around 62-75 celsius)

“You can’t just slap a block of aluminum on the CPU, though.”

Pretty sure that was LITERALLY the end result of episode 2. It didn’t even have a fan except for a Corsair 120mm vaguely blowing next to it.

Hey guys, some tips for your safety and to make life much much easier. When cutting aluminium with a friction type disc, get a block of bees wax or bees wax candle and apply it to the disc. This lubricates the disc as alum gets quite soft when hot and grabs the disc which risks it exploding in your face. Second when drilling materials a simple rule of thumb, hard material=slow speed lotsa feed and the inverse of course soft materials =high speed soft feed and if your drill squeals its rubbing not cutting. And 3rd when you are cutting profiles in materials like the cpu mating plate, a jigsaw with the appropriate blade will be a godsend. Happy fabricating lads

Take 1mm copper sheet and 1mm aluminum sheet.

Cut a number of fins, mixing tall aluminum fins and short copper "spacer" fins.

The cuts, probably best done via a stack up and Wire EDM cut for consistency, need to include a couple of holes, into which copper or aluminum bolts can be ran through to tie it all together and create a sandwich.

If the fins are designed correctly, it might be easy to include a way to mount the heat sink to the motherboard and attach a fan to that as well.
