5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: absolutely incredible. 10 years of pc and tortured the whole way, the past two have been a dream with this cooler.The best product for my custom builds EVER. 1 80mm fan reverse duct work in my 2.8e hot tamale, and at full load cooler than all my others..with a fan barely audible. It will be moving on to my next board, I hope to keep it going for the rest of my pc buildin days.

Cons: for my setup (msi-6728,) it even cools the northbridge. my antec case 2600amb, loves the reverse duct. Not a single con to speak of.

Other Thoughts: Just buy it, and be careful with the oem retainers. Thermalright even has repacements for those.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good for the Price

Pros: Relatively small for the performance you get. Handles overclocking fairly well. I have this on my Intel E4400 2.0GHz and it overclocks to 3.65GHz and remains stable under load.

Cons: It does not come with a fan. On some motherboards the cooler may hang over the RAM, if you decide to mount in that configuration, this will prevent the use of tall RAM heatsinks.

Other Thoughts: Measure for room before you install this cooler. I can install and uninstall it without taking the motherboard out of the case, I have a large tower with a sliding motherboard tray.

This is not the best air cooler on the market. I favor the slightly larger Thermalright Ultima-90 because it cools better and a 92mm or 120mm fan can be attatched, it also has great clearance for components on the motherboard. I have used both coolers.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: it will cool a 775 E6550 quite well fan options are 80-92mm but none are included. several different brackets are available i.e. 775 a8 am2 and so on.see thermalright site it does cool quite well

Cons: no cons really just check its compatible with your MB.
using it as a passive cooler may be pushing the temp limts on some processors!!

Other Thoughts: since the egg hasn't had this for a while now i found it and the 775 bracket elsewhere. some things to keep in mind before purchasing..check compatability, narrow list. it can be mounted many ways i mounted it overlapping the NB cooler thats one less fan!! if your bending the MB after installing the backing plate(not included) the screws are way TOO TIGHT. i only gave this 4 eggs cause the backing plates arent included which is a pain because there are several socket specific models and they are hard to find..i dont fault the no fan!! would i buy another ?? NO it costs more than another popular brand for the same performance and half the TOTAL price!!(after fans and adapter(s))

5 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: its a large cooler no doubt. large surface area as far as fins are concerned i suspect it will do quite well with some diamond paste. lighter than copper version also cheaper..;)

Cons: may not fit your board or case no fan may not need one

Other Thoughts: i read the reviews did the math and it equaled this product yes the clips are tough to squeeze down but there were several AMD and intel chips that required upto 26ft.lbs. of pressure to cool properly thats a bit of force. maybe thats the reason why one doesn't mount the cooler until the board is bolted down in the case.

5 out of 5 eggsOverclocked P4, running at 15C on air.

Pros: My Pentium 4 (socket 478) overclocked to 3.55GHz runs at a very cool 15C (thats 59F) with this cooler and a generic fan attached to it! Fan blows downward for maximum performance. Very stylish, looks really nice in my case.

Thermal compound provided is excellent.

Cons: none unless you have a small case, in which case this thing probably wouldnt fit without a few mods. but thats not really an issue for me.

Other Thoughts: would look really nice with a few cathode tubes in there, the reflection of the light off the xp-90 would be great.

5 out of 5 eggsStill one of the best

Pros: This is a large heat sink, but it doesn't weigh a ton, and it still out-performs some of the newer, more expensive models on the market. I ran an XP-90 on my Abit AV8 for two years and liked it so much that I bought a new one for my new Biostar TForce 550 SE (using Thermalright's AM2 retention bracket). I have it overhanging my RAM for extra cooling.

Cons: Can be difficult to install. Wish it came with a fan.

Other Thoughts: I run a 90mm Vantec Stealth fan on my XP-90 for quiet performance. On an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+, my temps are 33C at idle and 43C at full load.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb Cooler!

Pros: I've had this for well over a year so I guess it's time to write a review.

Installation is easy but of course you have to have the board out of the case. I've used in on Abit and ASUS boards. It takes a bit longer to install but it is actually easier than the clip type.

No need to exert extra pressure on the socket twisting the latch as you would with an OEM.

Lighter than copper means less strain on the board and socket, especially important if you move your case a lot.

Cons: None. Just don't forget to blow out the dust every few months.

Other Thoughts: Since day one I have had a 92mm fan undervolted to about 1050 RPM and it's near dead silent. I used Ceramique and later moved to some old Arctic Silver 3, and although I can't tell the difference in performance it keeps my FX-55 in the 20C's and maybe mid-30C's under a heavy load.

Cool, lightweight, exceptional performance. I honestly couldn't ask for anything better.

5 out of 5 eggsBest on the market

Pros: After owning this heatsink for over a year now, its safe to say that this is the best money can buy. right now, with just a fan, my core temp is 29C IDLE! under a load it might go up to 34C. this is in an antec 180p wich really makes a difference.

Cons: the only problem with this heatsink is that its a little on the big side. its sitting right on top of my memory and its going to be a pain to take it off and install new mwmory.

Other Thoughts: I have had this same heatsink/fan for over a year now and it has yet to disappoint me.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Extremely effective heatsink. Even though I have a low rpm fan hooked up to it, my highly overclocked cpu still stays around 40C on full load.

Cons: Big. Make sure there won't be anything in the way on your mobo before getting this.

Other Thoughts: Don't use the thermal compound that comes with your cpu. Get some Arctic Silver or something comparable.
