Default Opinions on this HSF?


From gigabyte, Ive heard good things. Currently deciding between this, or a Hyper6, or an XP120.

The Thermalright XP-120 has better performance.

Yeah, XP-120. Or you can go classic, and get the Zalman 7700CU, you can never go wrong with that one. Or the ASUS Star Ice, it looks so damn cool! Works like a mother as well.

I prefer the Zalman 7700cu or the Xp90c (looks great all that copper gleaming like gold.)

The 7700cu has better cooling ability, and with the shroud off on the Gigabyte, it is a couple of degrees higher in the review I found.
