Lexcool may not be the first name that comes to mind when you mention heatsinks, though that won't stop Overclockers Online from reviewing their newest, the Lexcool XC-801. It hasn't got a MSRP price yet, so it is unlikely you'll see it in stores, read the review and see if you want to wait for it.
"The biggest drawback from the Lexcool XC-801 is the mounting issues that I ran into but I have a very simple solution to alleviate the pressure on the motherboard and to make mounting a lot easier....The fan does turn rather fast and is quite loud at this speed and a fan controller would really add to the value of this cooler. The cooling abilities of the XC-801 speak for themselves on the previous page and I was quite impressed with the results."
