The perfect cooling solution for your home-theater PC, the compact Thermalright XP-90C cooler uses pure copper to dissipate heat from your CPU without the noise of a fan. A solid copper base sits on top of your processor. A dense array of copper fins is welded to the base for the best connection to draw heat up and directly into a second, larger dense-fin heatsink. Four copper pipes are also attached to the base and pass through the outside of the larger top heatsink, giving hot air two different passages for escape.

A full assortment of mounting clips is included with the cooler allowing you to use it with most modern AMD or Intel processors including Intel Pentium D (Socket 775), Intel Pentium 4 (Socket 775), AMD Athlon 64 X2 (Socket 939), and AMD Sempron/AMD 64 (Socket 754/939/940) CPUs.

4 out of 5 eggsBe carefull when removing

Pros: Great heat dissipation, secure connection to mother board and chip. Add fan for stay cool gaming.

Cons: Be carefull when removing because it can pull the cpu from it's socket and bend the pins when removing. This could be if you use to much thermal paste or the units clips are hidden trapped behind the unit and mother board parts.

Other Thoughts: May not fit in some motherboard configurations. Check compatability charts.

5 out of 5 eggsthe best passive cooler out there!

Pros: All copper
fits great in limited space
doesn't really need a fan
looks like a little v8 engine
cools phenomenally!

Cons: has some of my blood on it, those fins are SHARP!
an inexperienced installer *couch* roommate *cough* might dent a heat pipe a little bit uninstalling it.

Other Thoughts: This thing is great. you dont even need a fan but i have a panflo running on mine. i have had it on a pentium d 840 and a c2d e6600. the e6600 most of the time doesnt even break 100F at idle and it is oc'd a little. the 840 would stick around 110, it did an excellent job! i'm getting another one for my e2140 to oc in my media box!

4 out of 5 eggsBetter than stock Opteron

Pros: took 9C off temp at full load. Opteron 175 @ 2.64 = 56C now.

Cons: Not really solid copper. I expected it to take down the temp a little more. The stock Opteron heatsink is actually pretty good; I'm just using a 20% overclock and it hits their recommended max of 65C.

Other Thoughts: fan bracketing and anti-vibration strips are kind of cheesy. I expected much better given the reputation.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic heatsink

Pros: This thing eats children. I have it on my 3800+ manchester stock voltage. Installed on the A8N32 SLI board with arctic silver 5 compound. I got 90mm fan on it and it is set at very low setting.
Idle temp is at 37 C. With fan on full blast at 5200 rpm's the temp goes down to 31 degrees. Excellent for heat dissipation espeically with the mobo because the heatsink fits perfectly right above the north bridge.

Cons: Heavy, must be attached to board very firmly. It's rather hard to clip on, but that's cause the aluminum is so thick and it needs to be snug on there. The wires to add a fan are a pain, but very efficient and functional.

Other Thoughts: Super stylish heatsink, great for a clear case, all you need is some high flow exhaust and you got a race engine.

5 out of 5 eggskeeps p4 cool

Pros: The xp90c is a great heatsink for overclocking. I installed it at the same time I installed my new p4 3.4Ghz sl8k4 prescott(478 socket), overclocked to 3.8Ghz. The cpu is stable at all times. With idle temps at 39-40C and 48-49C at full load, like after passmark burn-in for 1 hr or after playing rainbow six: vegas. Installed with Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste. Keeping the hot prescott cool!!!

Cons: The only problem I had was my pc froze up and wouldnt reboot, wouldnt even post. I found out that the support brace that goes behind the motherboard was touching my case. The plastic piece that was supplied with the heatsink support brace did not work that well, I guess. I sandwiched my motherboard, a piece of anti-static bag, the support brace, and another piece of anti-static bag. Everything is fine now.

Other Thoughts: After my Arctic Silver 5 sets, it might be a couple of degrees cooler, not that it needs to be.

5 out of 5 eggsSWEET!

Pros: You can run this without a fan if you want, though, to fully utilize this heatsink, get a fan

Cons: Really heavy, sometimes I wonder if it'll snap my mobo in half, but that's kinda half the fun in it.

Other Thoughts: Got it from another site, but only because they offered all the retention brackets with it, if Newegg had done so, I would have went with them, no doubt.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: ▐This is a good HS
▐It lowered the temps on my overclocked Clahammer
▐I paired it with the 92mm Silverstone SST-FM92 case fan

Cons: ▐Like stated before, it is heavy and has sharp edges
▐The way the fan sits on the hs is not how I expected, make sure that there is 4 holes on each side of your fan to screw onto the case

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as Advertised

Pros: With 1750 RPM fan keeps my overclocked Opteron at 24C

Cons: Need to replace the stock frame with one with heat sink. The screws supplied are too long to tighten the bottom plate.

Other Thoughts: The annoying whine from the stock fan is gone!!

4 out of 5 eggsThermalright LGA775 RM Retention Bracket

Pros: very nice

Cons: It would have been nice if it was mentioned somewhere that the 775 sockets require a Thermalright LGA775 RM Retention Bracket.

5 out of 5 eggsGood stock alternative

Pros: Fits firmly without making you feel you are going to break something, farely easy to install, quiet, offers good cooling. So far I've dropped my CPU temps on a 3800 X2 from 46 degrees idle to 40 and i still need to let the paste settle in.

Cons: sharp edges...just be careful. they won't cut your arm off but they can prick you.

Other Thoughts: its pretty heavy, makes me a little worried about hangin on my mobo, but i guess all will be fine.
