Zalman heat-sinks are great but the Tuniq Tower 120 would be a better choice overall.

Now, for the big problem; it's mostly out of stock in most places. It's that good.
I would buy it but my CNPS is good enough till I get my water cooling kit.

well i love my regular xp-90, cools my 3.0E at 3.6 to around 32º C idle, and around 45º C on a load if that helps.

EDIT: Seems you have the same processor as me

I love my xp-90c got a torndo fan on it but have a fan controller so no need to worry about the noise, 3.2 @ 4.0ghz idles at 32c and max load is 50c fantastic heatsink, you should get a good 92mm panaflo fan with a high cfm rateing and all will be good for you mate.

XP-90C = about 1~3*C difference from the regular. Not worth the extra $10~, IMO. Just pair the reg. up with a good fan, and you'll have a nice heatsink.

Hi Scotty,

I asked this question about a month ago and based on reviews and the folks here at overclock bought one from Xoxide. http://www.xoxide.com/insoc42pen4c.html
I purchased the non copper unit. Based on reviews it was pretty close to the same temps. I was running a Zalman 7000Cu and found that the XP-90 dropped my temps about 3-5degC.
I currently run 32-35degC idle and 41-48degC under load. I like the difference between room temps and computer temps more though.

With the Zalman, I was running 15degC or more over room temps. Now as you can see the difference 10-12degC. This means during the summer my cpu will never hit 55degC. Some thing it was doing last summer...

The XP-90 worked for me... Also I recently purchased a Silverstone FM92 fan for the XP-90. It's a 110mm fan knocked down to 92mm at the based. It dropped the temps maybe 1degC or so at low fan idle speeds. It will drop the temps more, but then it's louder than my old Enermax 92mm fan. So I guess I can recommend this fan, if you want more cooling. It definetly has more air flow than the Enermax, but then there is a "little" more noise. Since noise is subjective, it may not be a bother to you and then again it might... The FM92 does come with a nice adjustable fan bracket as well. Here's a link to the Silverstone 92:

I hope this helped, :-)
