And to Sora at the beginning of this thread.

3DMark06 scores do not mean anything, really. In most games, the HD2900XT performs worse than both the 8800gtx and the Ultra, both in single and dual configurations
what an xp-90? i've never heard of it... nor have i recommended it in a build b4...

EDIT is this what your talking about?

Newegg.com - Thermalright XP-90 Multiple Heatpipes CPU Heatsink - Retail

as for the heatsinks... Ste is right on the money.. those are great... but also add Tuniq Tower 120, maybe the forum should do a Heatsink Guide?
Do you even read what you said? Ste just recommended the XP-90(among other heatsinks.), and you said he was right on the money...

But yes, that's what I'm talking about.

It's a decent heatsink, for it's time. It wont be able to sufficiently handle a significantly overclocked quad's TDP. There are better heatsinks for the money now, anyway.
