OC3D Review: Microcool Mosfet Heatsinks

They perform great, suprisingly. You can read the review here.

When they get hot, they can cause voltage fluctuation which can make your computer unstable at a certain point.
the warmer mosfets gets the less power can flow through them so im not so sure the voltage starts to fluctuate but more gets lower but can be wrong.

Yeh, I read wikipedia's (i think) definition and paraphrased it.

depends on.

aluminium is better than copper to transfer heat to the air so with a low airflow aluminium is better.

you can se the same thing in reviews on the zalman 7000b.

at the lowest fan setting the alcu performs the same as the cu but at max fan settings the cu is roughly 2 celsius better.

Yep and 'fets get low-flow usually so these will be pretty effective
