The time has come to decide on one of those Monster Heatsinks..!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking along the lines of one of the Thermalright beasts, not the TRUE or any of that. I've got an AM2 mobo...so what do ya recommend? maybe the Thermalright extreme 120? or theThermalright IFX-14 Heatsink with HR-10 ?


Cheers!

Looks like another good one...will wait for my feedback. The reason I'm not getting a true is because I've never seen it in NZ and the name makes me think ***? lol.

Thermalright 120 Extreme [TRUE] - just get a god fan for it [38mm fan with 80+ CFM would be best]

I can vouch for that one as well, although I like the copper colored one better.

Tuniq tower 120 is supposed to be a beast (humongous chunk of metal)

Zerotherm also has a bunch of really nice products (an up-and-coming company)

Look at results though, temp wise the true kills everything
those zalman coolers are no where near on par.
