Does the thermal model in the MK3S firmware 3.13.2 work correctly with a copper heaterblock?

So i am a bit anxious ( or lazy ?? 😀 ) to load the latest firmware onto my MK3S.

The machine is running fine, but i would like primarily the added security from the thermal model. 

My machine has a genuine E3D copper heater block upgrade.

I searched already, but found no answer... 

Does the latest 3.13.2 firmware work without false alarms on a machine with the "E3D V6 Plated Copper HeaterBlock" ?

I don't know about that specific heater block but it works five with my Mk3S printers that all have Dragon hotends, which has copper heater blocks.

Thank you for your response.

that specific heater block

It is mechanically identical to the MK3S stock heaterblock, but made of high temp copper alloy and therefor has a higher weight and heat capacity.

I will give the latest firmware a try 👍
