Thermalright XP-90 and XP-90C

Filed under
Hardware
Reviews

The XP-90 was released approximately a year ago and made quite a splash in the market. Lightweight, excellent performance and a low price made it very difficult for other competitors. The XP-90C came o­n the scene many months later by high demand, which is really nothing more than the XP-90, except for the fact that the XP-90C is made totally of copper. The only copper part of the XP-90 is the base of the heat-sink, which also explains why the weight of the XP-90C is almost double the weight of the XP-90!

The performance of both heat-sinks can be considered outstanding. Both heat-sinks are able to hold the CPU at very low temperatures, even at overclocked settings.

If that’s not reliable, then I’m wasting time trying to fix the one tool my job requires.
