Default Copper Foil Tape

Good day! I am just wondering if copper foil tape is really effective in cooling cpu or gpu by putting on top of the heatsink.

The laptop (HP Notebook - 15-ay071tu) photo below has no fan but the temperature while watching video is only 60 and idle is 45. Pls advise.

thank you

If both the chip and the copper (or aluminum) in the heatsink are touching the paste in the middle then there is no reason why you should put anything between them.
