I have a new copper heat sink coming in soon .the price for first 100 sold $29 to LPFM,it will fit a lot of host. Get order in before they get gone.
made to take a 20mm driver or 17mm driver

I believe the heat sink material of the future may be graphene. It has like 10X the thermal conductivity of diamond. It also conducts electricity much better, at least in certain directions. The heat capacity of graphene is probably pretty low like that of diamond, though. So it may be used in conjunction with other materials not alone, but it will definitely be there. It should also be far cheaper than copper and aluminum when they figure out how to make it in large amounts. So be looking for graphene electrical wiring and graphene and nanotube based materials for heat sinks.

give us a call when you think of a way to layer the graphene layer by layer without messing up the lattice eh?
Also , make sure its SUPER STRONG so we won't crack it due to its high stiffness.

The time when they can do that is the time SPACE ELEVATORS becomes reality.
