Back in August/September 2004 we saw some products uncharacteristic of Thermalright, namely the XP-120, XP-90, and SI-97. They actually used some aluminum, as opposed to pure copper. This "light 'n easy" line-up lived up to the performance level we expect from Thermalright, while remaining nice and light. Could this be the end of the heavy solid copper heatsinks we came to know and love? Nope! Enter the Thermalright XP-90C...690 grams of pure copper goodness.
As you may expect from the name, the XP-90C is identical to the XP-90, minus the fact that it is pure copper. So, how does this heavy-weight compare to the great performing XP-90? Is it worth the extra cost and increased weight? Read the full review for answers to these questions and more!
