Thermalright XP-90 and XP-90C

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.

Linux 4.2 is out

So judging by how little happened this week, it wouldn't have been a mistake to release 4.2 last week after all, but hey, there's certainly a few fixes here, and it's not like delaying 4.2 for a week should have caused any problems either. So here it is, and the merge window for 4.3 is now open. I already have a few pending early pull requests, but as usual I'll start processing them tomorrow and give the release some time to actually sit. The shortlog from rc8 is tiny, and appended. The patch is pretty tiny too. Go get it, Linus Read more
