This one is perhaps a little more sane than the 120mm model. It takes 90mm fans and is on sale now.

Overclockers.com Review

This new sink tops their ongoing P4 heatsinks list.

What I find interesting about this sink is the way its constructed. The large overhang (if oriented correctly) would be wonderful for cooling a hot northbridge and mosfets with the correct motherboard.

Is it possible for SPCR to get a sample of this and review it?
I would like to know how it fares against the Zalman 7000 coolers

From Thermalright:
Quote:
XP-90 is designed to fit all AMD socket 754/939/940 motherboards and Intel Pentium 4 socket 478 motherboards. So far, we have not found any board that is not compatible with XP-90.


This heatsink is good news for everyone who can't use the XP-120 with their motherboard.

I emailed Thermalright tech support about the XP-90. He said that it is about 3C cooler than the SLK-948U in his system. He also said it should be hitting retail channels at the end of this week.

Since he also said that the XP-120 wont fit on the new DFI 754 MB I want to get, looks like XP-90 is the way to go.

Off to research 92mm fans (Panaflo vs. SilenX). :)

Looks like an interesting contender (for those unfortunate who can't fit an XP-120), I agree. Fortunately, not an issue for me :D.
