Good lord these things are getting massive


When i bought my SLK-800 back in the day my initial impression was "Holy hell that thing is big!"

But i just got my new XP-90C in the mail...and, well...HOLY HELL THAT THING IS BIG!

How much bigger can they get without needing the assistance of a crane??

XP-120 is much bigger, but lighter. Hyper-6 and new 120mm towers are huge, compared to XP-90C.
Things will get really massive when BTX becomes popular.

btw, congratulations - you've bought great heatsink.

Yes sir the XP120 is a monster, if it were heavy my socket would clearly be ripped off the mobo .
