This 99.9% commercially pure Copper can be bent, riveted, drilled, soldered, brazed and welded to most any design requirement. Commonly used for electrical connections and ground straps.

3in = 76mm which is larger than any waterblock.
$1.55 for 1/4" x 3" x 3"
$3.60 for 3/8" x 3" x 3"
$5.1" for 1/2" x 3" x 3"


Wow, these are really cheap prices. I just need to confirm the dimensions are correct above.
Once again...

Thanks. I'm practicing making my own blocks out of aluminum right now because copper is so expensive. Those prices are real good. I was looking at almost 7 times that price from onlinemetals. rep+

The measurements would actually be:1/4" x 1/4" OD/square in lengths of 3" to 36" since these are square rod and not flat bar.

Youre right. Oh well. I was so excited about getting copper blanks for $3.60!

Is that right? What about the Intel No-Go zone? I thought 72mm or something was allowed.

Oh, the source is no good to mis-reading the sizing.
