Thermalright XP-120 K8/P4 CPU Cooler Review

Price: $47.95


Introduction
We don't review many heat sinks anymore, unless we think it's something very special. Today, we're going to take a look at Thermalright's new XP-120 heat sink which we believe will fall under the "special" category. The XP-120 is what Thermalright calls "Heavy-Weight performance in a feather-weight package" which seems to accurately describe this cooler. To give you an idea of how massive this heat sink really is, the XP-120 utilizes a 120mm fan!

The XP-120 is an aluminum heat sink with six heatpipes and has a nickel plated high purity copper base. The XP-120 was designed for performance but also for quiet cooling. We're going to put the XP-120 up against our Alpha PAL 8150, a heat sink that is sure to put the XP-120 to the test!
