Hi guys,

I've just found some copper sheet, it's kinda thinnish though, around 0.7mm, just wondering if that is thick enough to be worth the bother of cutting a spreader plate out of to go on one of my K6-2s, that I denuded of it's ally pressed plate. Do you think it will have much effect? Or d'ya think the extra thermal interface will kill any small advantage?

thanks,

Road Warrior

i dont think it would be worth it, because it would be very, very difficult to get that thing on correctly, and would hurt more than it helps
