Thermalright SI-120 CPU Cooler Review

The Heatsink

Being made mostly out of aluminium, the Thermalright SI-120 weighs in at only 400 g. That's pretty light for such a large heatsink. A standard 120x120x25 mm fan weighs about 200 g, so even with a fan attached, it's much lighter than monster coolers like the Thermaltake Big Typhoon which weighs in at 800 g!

As you can see, the SI-120's fin section is elevated about 5cm above the base. This gives it enough height to clear any surface-mounted components around the processor socket. It also makes the clips somewhat more accessible during the installation process.



If you're familiar with the XP-120, then you will immediately notice that the fin section of the SI-120 is attached to the base by the five heatpipes.

In the XP-120, a good portion of the fins start right from the base itself. The SI-120 pretty much looks like a hybrid of the SI-97 and the XP-120.

Opposite the five heatpipes are two thin metal support struts which provide support for the other side of the fin section.
