Default Heat Sink Choice

Hi I have heard good things about all three of these heat sinks and was wondering if you guys could give me your opinions on which one you think I should get.

XP-90c

XP-120

Big Typhoon

also do the xp-90c and the xp-120 need fans?

Thanks

The XP-90c. It's even better than the XP-120 (by only one degree, but still). Yes, you will need to buy a fan seperate. Try and get the one Thermalright recommends.

I would go for the XP 90c, always go for a HS that is made fully from copper as is is better cooling wise.
