Remember the legendary Thermalright XP-120? It gained recognition for being one of the first heatsinks to tame the heat from Intel’s notorious Presshot (sorry I meant Prescott) processors. Even though many heatsinks have overtaken it in terms of cooling performance, it still remained as a popular option for HTPCs. Today, Thermalright has released the successor
We give you a peek at Foxconn’s take on the X58 chipset – the top-end Blood Rage motherboard.

Well look no further, Alpha1Ma puts Sapphire’s HD4830 (512MB), HD 4870 (512MB), HD 4870 Toxic (overclocked edition 512MB), and Sapphire HD 4850×2 (2GB) to the test.
