   The BigRock and Iceburg are similar in size and material, both being aluminum based.  The CopperRock is copper based and a lot smaller.

Big Rock

Super Rock

Copper Rock

   The BigRock and SuperRock are both machined from one block of material, while the Copper Rock has its curved fins attached to the unit instead.  Notice the slight height difference between the Super and Big Rock.

   The clips are pretty basic run of the mill bars.  You definitely need a small flat screw driver to install these units on your motherboard.  It does have a small oval shield that protrudes from the clips up region.  Guess this helps give you a bit more leverage to push the clip down.
