Default Thermalright XP-120 Review: New sound of Silence?

Thermalright introduces a new heatsink with support for 120mm fans, made from aluminum its light as a feather, but does it perform? Weve installed the XP-120 on our test system with a variety of fans on top to see how it stacks up against the competition.

Dajum, that's some impressive performance!

You're not selling it by any chance?

I still need it for further testing
Ask Bacata for resellers info, they have sales points in Belgium also, near Brussel if I'm not mistaken, check their site!

Further testing with the system build into a case with some silent case cooling will determine if you can run this heatsink in a passively cooled setup. Stay tuned.
He ain't kidding.
Nice article.

i mailed today for comptabilty and hoera hoera:

Hi,

I'm happy to report that the XP-120 is compatible with your motherboard!!

For Thermalright,

Bob Dyl


It's fits on a Albatron PX845PEV Pro so, now finding a seller in Belgium who can deliver by rembours.
Anyone knows one ?

Would appreciate it.

Notice the new design fan clips?

They now clip onto the lower porton of the fan instead. This means XP-90 will have the same fan mounting dimensions as MCX462 or MCX478-V in 90 or 92mm fan.

belgium only: so i'll do it in dutch

www.hardwareonline.be (ja, sluikreclame, maar tis ni echt alsof we concurrenten zijn van [M] ) is van plan een IA te starten voor deze koelers (de P4/K8 versie). hou het forum in de gaten.

voorlopige prijzen door Hofline:
5 stuks: 55
10 stuks: 52
15 stuks of meer: 49

(ik heb 60 betaalt voor de mijnen bij beerke toen ze juist uit waren. officiele prijs is 62.5 geloof ek)

PS: onder voorbehoud, maar de IA zou binnenkort moeten starten...
