you have no XP-120 to compare with that stock cooling, got a xp-120 myself but I find it a bit to big, offcourse it cools great and it is silent but if the stock cooling works allmost as good as the xp-120 I'll try to get one (cheap or free )

that is not a good idea


The XP-120 is light and it's close to the motherboard, so the pressure it has on the mounting isn't too bad. It's big but so what?


You will be seriously dissapointed even at stock speeds regarding the noise level and even more when you overclock because the stock 80mm just has nothing on a decent 120mm fan.

quick question :

can I remove the TIM on the copper base with aceton?
(isopropyl alcohol is prolly better but i only have aceton atm)

Acetone is also very abrasive; you may still want to make sure no residue left on the copper surface.

I like the arctic silver 2 step cleaning stuff for such tasks, it's very effective.

This cooler is great

The fan is only running 2700 rpm (silent) , keeps my 3800+ Venice at 42C full load. (oh yeah , cpu is overclocked to 2808Mhz @ 1,52 vcore )

+ very easy installation. (I always have trouble installing my Thermalright XP-90)

Lazyman : After the acetone treatment , I cleaned the copper base with paper napkins and let it 'dry' for an hour.
