The XP-120 Heatsink

Since it is mostly made from aluminum, it is a very lightweight heatsink even with its huge size. It only weighs 370g, albeit without a fan.

So, it's very safe to transport your PC even with the XP-120 mounted. The only part that isn't made from aluminum is its copper base, which is nickel-plated.

The upper fins are elevated approximately 4 cm above the base to stay clear of surface-mounted components on the motherboard.

The five heatpipes which start from the base bend upward to pass through the upper fins, ending at the last fin.
