Thermalright XP-90C Heatsink


When the original XP-90 was released last year, many people were somewhat disappointed that it wasn't all copper like many of Thermalright's heatsinks. By popular demand the XP-90C was released, featuring the exact same design as the XP-90 except that it is the much anticipated all copper design. This new copper model is almost double the weight of its aluminum-copper predecessor!

A special thanks goes out to CrazyPC for supplying the XP-90C for review.
