I bought a SI-97 and i'm still amazed at the MBM readings every time i start my rig compared to the ones i had with a 1 pounder copper HS, that thermalright line is really something ;)

 

EDIT : this is what i had before and managed a 9

lol he cant use the SI-97 cos its only for Socket A..

 

I thought copper made a better heatsink than aluminum did??

 

yes they do but copper is also heavier..sooo basically you can make a really big surface area heat sink using aluminium and yet be lighter than their copper counterparts..but those XP-90, SI-97 and XP-120, they are not entirely aluminium..their base are still copper with nickel plated :) best heat sink money can buy is either the Xp-120 or Xp-90 for you..if you cant use XP-120 due to mobo compatibility, then the xp-90 would do you good :) or if you really want to stick to good old copper..get the MCX-478V hehehe 1/2 inch thick copper base :P
