Air cooling for the masses & More

I find large heatpipe heatsinks are starting to look like car engines, and the Thermalright XP-90 that Silent PC Review looks at is no exception. If that HS/F isn't the one for you, the Phoronix has looked at a few other types, and that's not even half the reviews today.
"Thermalright's XP-90 CPU heatsink, which features four heatpipes, thin aluminum fins and a nickel-plated copper base, was released at the same time as the XP-120. It is essentially an XP-120 shrunk to work with a 92mm fan for those who cannot accommodate a 120mm fan. Amazingly light, a little cheaper, and much easier to install: How does it perform with a quiet fan like the Nexus 92? SPCR puts the XP-90 through its paces and brings you the full monty, complete with high resolution sound files."
