H50 versus H50-1

I have an H50 installed and love it. Looking to buy another. What is the difference between the H50 (copper) and the H50-1 (copper and aluminum). Which is better? Hard to tell from the price because depending on the day and the vendor one is cheaper than the other.

The H50 weights more than H50-1 because the H50 backplates and retention clamps are made of thick heavy plastic and big chrome screws and springs and the H50-1 are made of thin light steel.The H50-1 also comes with the AMD brackets and the 1156 brackets,which the H50 doesnt have.The H50 would of been even heavier if it included the amd mount and backplate because the amd heavy steel backplate weights about a pound by itself.

Still a little confused. I have the H50 or at least that is what I thought I bought and it has all the stuff to mount the Intel 775/1156/1366 and both versions of the AMD AM2/AM3. Based on the ZipZoomFly technical descriptions it would seem the H50 base is Copper and the H50-1 base is Copper and Aluminum?

There is no difference in the actual cooling portion of the H50 package vs the H50-1 package. The ONLY difference is the improved mounting options. If you have 1156 included in the package, then you got a -1.

 

My only guess at "aluminum" in the description is that they are stating that the radiator is made of aluminum.
