The good guys at Thermalright were nice enough to send their XP-90 P4/K8 heatpipe heatsink for a test spin. In contrast to some heatpipes I have tested, the heatpipes are soldered to the copper base - some used thermal paste instead, with performance suffering as a result.

Mounting is straight forward - ther are two clips which engage the P4 retention bracket. The preferred mounting procedure is to engage the two clips at the back end of the heatsink and then rock it forward toward the RAM slots to engage the retention bracket. There are parts for a K8 barcket as well.
Full Review...

CONCLUSIONS
Thermalright's XP-90 heatpipe is well made and an excellent choice for P4/K8 cooling. Mating Thermalright's Heatpipe with a rheostat controlled fan might be the preferred approach for the power user looking for peak performance followed by a quiet night's sleep.
