Hi guys, I'd like to install an heatsink on my OPi1.

'cause on summer ambient temps are too high... Can I install an heatsink taken from a mobo chipset on the OPi1? the heatsink is bigger than the h3 cpu, it cover either the cpu and the ram, does this (one heatsink for ram and cpu) will be bad for temp?
If I want, instead, buy an heatsink for h3, 14mm or 15mm? ceramic, copper or aluminium?
thank you so much

Not bad at all.  If it isn't shorting anything out and you can tolerate the geometry, it is fine.  Stick with copper or aluminum for heat sinks, more mass results in higher temperature stabilty, more surface area means more dissipative value.
