It's a good bargain, you paid for AlCu and get Cu ;)

But 755g for trips of 500 miles :shock:

It's strange that you feel surprised of that incompatibility, because i'ts clearly stated Incompatible on Zalman site:

For someone who was that concerned about methodology and "real comparisons", that's a pretty half-assed test you've done there: You haven't read my previous posts (even the title of the topic where you are replying), I'm not doing a general test , but a comparison between 3 heatsinks in my rig , wi...

so we can extrapolate interpolate :wink: No, no I confirm, extrapolate ;) Useful blowing area of a 92mm fan: 6217 mm² Useful blowing area of a 120mm fan: 9785 mm² - it's 50% more than 92mm fan For that calculation i didn't extrapolate the hub diameter of a 92mm, just took the 80mm fan diameter.

if surface area (top) of the heatsink is only 92^2 mm^2 and the fan area is 120^2 mm^2, maybe at the perimeter (incidentally where there is max airflow) it is wasted on the si-97? or you are planning to build a sort of 'funnel' to pipe the 120 down onto the smaller top of the heatsink?

@ Jojo540 if you use a 120mm Globe, you won't be able to use that on the zalman too.. :( Silentboost have a 80mm stock fan, Zalman a 90mm stock fan and my SI-97 modded a 120mm fan, so I know that I'll compare 3 heatsinks with 3 different diameter fans.

The test data for the SI-97 is in my hands and what's required is for me to pull it all together into a review article. This should happen within a week.

By comparing the °C/W numbers, which are really a measure of its design efficiency, independent of its compatibility. Ok, but it's only an "intellectual comparison", but not a real comparison in same conditions, with same CPU, comparing the temperature results. We hope that in your announced future...

How can you compare SI-97 ans XP90? they are not for the same socket.

SI-97 ONLY socket A
XP90 for socket 478/754/939/940, but NOT socket A.

Is this for a Socket A system? I expect the SI-97 should win* - the XP-90 is aluminium, but still manages to beat just about every all-copper cooler out there. *That's ThermalRight's new Socket A aluminium HS with heatpipes, similar to the XP-90 design, right? XP90 doesn't feet socket A, and XP90 h...

So we can say that both, Silentboost and Nexus where in the same conditions 12V, so you won 2°C with the SI-97.

Which thermal paste do you use?

Sorry for so many questions, but I have now a Silentboost, and plan to buy a SI-97, it's the reason why of my interest in your results ;)
