Thermalright is on a roll with top-flow CPU cooler launches lately, and just added its latest creation, the AXP90-X47 Full Copper. Fit for low-profile builds, this 47 mm-tall top-flow cooler, as its name suggests, uses a heatsink that's made almost entirely of copper, complete from the base-plate to the heat-pipes, to the dissipation-fins, with the only non-copper bits being the retention module.

Four 6 mm-thick copper heat-pipes make indirect contact with the CPU through a C1100-grade copper base, conveying heat to a stack of 54 copper fins. This 32 mm-tall heatsink is ventilated by a 15 mm-tall TL-9015R 90 mm fan. Featuring a hydraulic bearing, the fan spins at 2,700 RPM, pushing up to 42.58 CFM of airflow at 1.33 mm H₂O static pressure, and 22.4 dBA minimum noise. Measuring 95 mm x 94.5 mm x 47 mm (WxDxH, including fan), the AXP90-X47 Full Copper weighs 520 g. CPU socket types supported are AM4, LGA1200, and LGA115x. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Huh? I did not see the mention of metal fan anywhere. Ofcourse its plastic.

I would love for Thermalright to do full copper dual-tower behemoth. They once did produce single tower but it's been discontinued: http://thermalright.com/product/true-copper/
The single tower was already very heavy from what I can recall. So I can imagine, having a twin tower full copper cooler may cause some issues when hanging it on the motherboard.

Not that big of a deal these days. Most motherboards now use more layers and better ones even come with reinforced backplate.
For example the IceGiant Prosiphon Elite is 2KG: https://geizhals.eu/icegiant-prosip....html?hloc=at&hloc=de&hloc=eu&hloc=pl&hloc=uk

Several Cooler Master Dual-Towers are 1,62KG.
Considering the target market i doubt many people will mount these behemoths to 35W CPU on entry level boards.

As seen as the weight is based close to the motherboard and not hanging over 3-5 inches it should be a none issue as well.

Ahhhh pure COPPA :) I have a soft spot for that. Their previous ULTRA 120 has the status of a collection item now, costing way more than it's original price. It's a shame they didn't re-master their AXP-100 VGA cooler. I still think it has place among today's cards.

I think it is a great cooler, but because it is naked copper, it tends to look terrible after some years due to oxidation.

Agree. But these coolers are mostly aluminum, including the IceGiant cooler, and converting any of these massive heatsink to full copper will easily exceed 2KG, not including the fan.

Yeah, I have a soft spot for all copper heatsink too for custom experiments., What would have been nice is if they made the bracket attachments copper too (OTT).

What if the made a Direct touch heatpipe version too.

You can find a bunch of their stuff on AliExpress. They are alive and well outside of North America.

I think they use a corrosion prohibitive coating, even of they dont the patina should still be thermally ... good.

The reason we see very few copper heatsinks is because although copper has a higher thermal conductivity than aluminium, it has a similar (but slightly worse) ability to radiate heat away.

When you add the high weight and cost to the low strength of copper, it's simply not the economical choice for a radiator fin. In some circumstances where the radiator fin is very long and heat has a fair distance to travel from the heatpipe to the fin tip, there may be enough of an advantage in conductivity of copper to outweigh the minor advantage aluminium has at radiating heat away. For something this small I see zero advantage, and would be surprised to see any difference in effectiveness between this and its aluminium variant.

Thermal radiation is nothing more than emission of infra-red light, and just like visible light, shiny things like mirrors absorb/emit poorly and dull things like matte black absorb/emit the best. Copper is shinier than aluminium, though at least here Thermalright haven't polished or machined the copper fin plates - which is important because machined copper stays shiny, whilst machined aluminium goes dull to oxidation very rapidly.

I wanna see a head-to-head between this cooler, the Cryorig C7cu, the L9x65 and the L12 Ghost S1. It might be smaller but it's 25% heavier than the L9x65 and the same weight as the L12. Someone tell Optimumtech to add this cooler to his collection :D

Not expecting it to keep up with the L12S and Black Ridge obviously, but if it can match the L9x65 and L12 then it seems like a decent competitor. And with 72-75mm clearance you might be able to slap a 92x25mm thick fan on there, which isn't possible on the L9x65.

On second thought, maybe not, Thermalright didn't give it an extra set of notches for 25mm fans like on the L9x65.

Presumably the 47mm height which gives it the X47 suffix.

The original AXP90 was already 47mm.

"With the fan in place, the AXP-90 Full Copper measures 97 mm x 92 mm x 47 mm (WxDxH), weighing 490 g."
"Measuring 95 mm x 94.5 mm x 47 mm (WxDxH, including fan), the AXP90-X47 Full Copper weighs 520 g."

The two seem more or less the same except the X47 has a combined Intel/AMD mounting bracket.

Congratulations, you've researched the answer to your own question.
Re-releasing a product because it's had a trivial update is nothing new in the PC industry. Sometimes, the update is nothing more than a new label on the box!
