Thermalright has been a leader in high performance heatsinks for AMD & Intel processors for quite some time now. Thermalright's constant innovation has led to bigger and better products to meet the demands of overclockers & PC enthusiasts. Today we are taking a look at the very popular XP-90 heatsink, which is a copper/aluminum design utilizing heatpipes and very large surface areas for maximum heat dissipation. The XP-90 is slightly smaller than the XP-120, and resolves some clearance issues on a few motherboards people were having with the XP-120.

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