a copper block might, but if it is too big then the heat wont disapate into the actualy heatsink, it will just stay in the copper block. would be ncie to try though.

Possibly, a lot of cheap-o heatsinks have copper blocks attached to their aluminum bases to help aid in dissipation. I guess u could try, but u'd have to make sure that it doesnt lift the HSF too far up or you wont be able to latch it down.

The last thing u'd ever want to do is use thermal adhesive to attach a heatsink to ur processor, because it's never comin' off, lol... and if u do get it off, it's takin with it, more than likely the IHS if u have one, if u were retarded enough to attach it directly to the die on an exposed die proccy then say buhbye to the core! lol

short answer no it would have to be physically connected(with 100% matched surfaces -- impossible) to the heatsink to dissapate heat any better else it will do quite to opposite (even with tim tween the HS and copper it will still be lower performance) sorry man has to be the same metal (or soldered perfectly) to increase performance

Basically it would be best to buy a decent HSF cause unless you're an expert metal workerthen it will turn out !!
