Here's Four Pounds Of Heatsink

Recommended Posts

I guess overclockers are happy with Prescott. Not as an overclockable chip, but because it is spurring the development of giant heatsinks to slap on other more genuinely overclockable chips...

Actually, that heatsink looks good for someone who wants a quiet rig. You could probably passively cool an underclocked athlonXP with it if you wanted...

I have one on my Abit IC7 / P4 2.8 @ 3.72 combo. Two 2500 RPM 92mm fans - not too loud, and pretty effective cooling.

I'm considering replacing it with a Thermalright Xp120, though, while I can still return the beast to Fry's :)

I'd hate to think how a heavy monster like that would stress the mainboard. The its size makes things worse still in a tower.

Whatever you do, don't drop your tower. The entire area around the CPU would be ripped out.
