Most commercial water block companies (Danger Den, etc.) seem to use C11000 over C10100. I don't know if it is because of price & availability, or if it is easier to mill. I suspect it is because of price/avail.

Edit;
Just went to www.onlinemetals.com and all they sell is C11000 (AKA C110). So availability is probably the biggest issue.

That stuff looks pretty good, but I suspect that they
have exagerated the thermal conductivity a bit.

A key you might want to search on for copper is
OFHC -- Oxygen Free, High Conductivity.

As a practical matter the two should perform about
the same.

No magic bullets....Well, maybe silver ones. :D
