Actually silver is better than gold as a heat sink. But, considering that copper gets close to silver in thermal conductivity, why spend the money.

I like the look of your brass housings but aluminum or copper would be nice too, stainless avoids tarnish but is not good for heat sink......so I say brass or copper, actually been wanting to get some brass hosts made.

How big is the RGB module, can we see some pic of the module ?

A long time ago I made a host from brass nipples and related parts. It was used to house a dpss green laser module.
