I am thinking of buying a new heatsink, since my mobo is back.. I did have the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme, but maneuvering this heatsink is too much time consuming, plus they are heatsinks out there that perform better for lesser value...
This time a direct heat pipe touching one:
Kingwin RVT-12025D and Kingwin RVT-12025 the only difference is one is a tower style heatsink and the other like the good old XP-90 style heatsink.
The only difference in the 9225 and 12025 is that the 12025 is a newer version of HDT technology coolers.
I really still attract the 12025 and 12025D (this one more because it blows air towards the mobo for hot motherboards)..

Now all I need from you guys is input on which to go for, now since I don't have much time because of work keeping damn good busy, I need your help in picking out the major differences and which to go for.
Offcourse same deal as most of you, overclock or play games, intel processor require some cooling.
wouldn't it just be easier to stick with the 120, which is an excellent heatsink? by difficult to maneuver, do you mean that it doesn't fit in your case, or it's difficult to mount?
What about the Thermalright Ultima 90.
If you have a couple of days i will let you know how the Xigmatec does on my Q6600. it should be here in a couple of days. I did have an Ultima-90 on it but I moved it over to my E3110.
I don't see what's wrong with the TRUE. I have one myself and it isn't that difficult to put in. Sure you need to remove the motherboard, but with any heatsink it's usually easier with the motherboard out of the case. Plus it comes with a backplate so you have that reassurance your motherboard isn't going to snap into pieces.
If you insist on a new one, I'd go with the linked Xigmatech. Unless you can find the Sunbeamtech Core-Contact Freezer.
Nothing outperforms the Ultra 120 Extreme. Makes no sense to switch to an inferior heatsink.
That bolt through style of mounting the heatsink is what I find hard, even after removing the mobo, you have the press really hard, and I don't even have a drill.. not that I am weak :haha:.. just hard lol..
One another prob I had was that I had lapped my heatsink, for some reason as time went on the temps started increasing, its clear it lots a little of its base hence the heatsink slightly rotates even after mounting. I added pieces of card board on top but didn't work. One more thing I have is that I need a new back plate since I had RMA the mobo, and I accidently removed that paper covering the sticky part on the heatsink, also the plastic part that leaves a slight gap btw the mobo and back plate causing a short to happen.
Sorry for the long reply, but that is my sad story
I've had the Kingwin RVT-12025 for about 2 weeks I'm happy with it. Its mounted on an AMD processor right now, mounting is easy, no need to take out the motherboard, cant speak for an Intel mount however... You'll need a deep case however.
I too was kind of interested in the horizontal RVT-12025D but the one review I read, it didnt cool as effectively. I think the 12025 was about 25 bucks from Direct Canada you can price match it with NCIX.
It would be nice to see it reviewed against a TRUE. I think I read somewhere there was a 4 heatpipe direct touch version out, or coming out as well.
