980Ti Reference Cooler Base Material

Does the 980Ti reference use copper on the baseplate? I want to use liquid metal with it which won't work with aluminum

Don't be stupid and believe that someone who's had much more experience than you on LTT hasn't already tried looking things up.

Could be nickel plated but I doubt it. Temps aren't that bad but I have to crank up the fans a lot higher than I'd like since it's summer. I'll repaste with something of quality if things get worse.

Yeah, I changed the paste on my 980 Ti (Though I have the windforce Gaming OC) and sanded the base of the heatsink (nickplated copper) and saw a solid 10C drop.

 

I'm almost certain it's nickel plated copper for the reference card. I might be wrong though.
