ExtremeMhz takes a look at a new companies heatsink. There's a lapping kit to look at, or maybe you are more concerned about noise dampening? Don't forget the 3 way fanless VGA cooler showdown, and for those neat-freaks out there, PCI slot covers!
"It's been a little while since I've had the opportunity to review a heatsink, and it's been even longer while since I've been able to review a heatsink from a new company.

XG Gamer is MGE's new enthusiast department, and one of their latest devices is the Ice Age Pentium 4 heatsink. XG has put a lot of the latest design ideas into this one, including heatpipes! But does it perform? Read on!"
