If you make use of the full duty cycle yes it would take longer to cool since it can take in more heat. I agree though aluminum has it's place, I have an Al sink for my mag lite build.
Shouldn't it actually takes in less due to its lower specific heat capacity and density which results in a lower volumetric heat sinking capability and LOWER heat conductivity.
Thus making it worst in every case?
