A heat sink is a peltier system or a lover to maintain a warm element like a processor cool. There are two heat sink types: passive and active.
The basic aim of heat sink is keep the CPU cool to work properly. If this heat is not kept in check, the processor could overheat and eventually destroy itself.
Copper is used because it has many desirable properties for thermally efficient and durable heat exchangers. First and foremost, copper is an excellent conductor of heat. This means that copper’s high thermal conductivity allows heat to pass through it quickly. Aluminum is used in applications where weight is a big concern.
