Default Re: is this heatsink good

I've seen only one other person have that, on their computer....and that's Apokalipse. You should ask him about it. It does look like a nice heatsink to run passively. What processor, are you trying to cool? A Tuniq is a good heatsink too, that cost around the same.

I think the Tuniq will do the job, for that CPU. The Sonic Tower, I haven't heard anything really on it. Ask Apokalipse's opinion on it, since he owns one, and he also has the X2 6000+.

No you can't. If you do, popcorn will come out.
