Thermalright introduces SI-97, Athlon XP heatsink based on XP-90

* Multiple heatpipes for well spread heat around aluminum fins
* Enormous wingspan gives extra cooling to surrounding components
* Soldered fins to copper base (nickel plated) to make effective contact
* Light weight and easy installation

You'd be surprised with CV. I use cheap heatsinks with the expensive ones for testing only.
