    Thermalright, best known for its aluminum fin heatsinks devised the AXP-140 CPU heatsink for HTPCs, that is low-profile friendly with a height of 7 cm. VR-Zone unboxed the heatsink to take a few pictures.

    The AXP-140 supports Intel processors on the LGA-775 socket. It consists of a thick nickel-plated copper CPU contact block from which six aluminum heatpipes convey heat to an aluminum fin array. Unlike conventional heatsinks from Thermalright, the array propagates horizontally along the plane of the motherboard. The dimensions of this heatsink are 145 x 147 x 70.2 mm (L x W x H). It weighs 900 g (1.98 lbs). Although this heatsink could cool some processors with low TDP passively for a silent operation, a 120mm fan can be attached to it for active air-cooling. The AXP-140 is expected to be priced at US $59 when it hits the stores.

    Damn almost 2 pounds? Without a fan! You would think over time that would stress the board on a vertical setup. Anyway do we have any thermal readings on this yet? Also any word on an AM2 version?

    Surely folks would use AMD before Intel for HTPC builds...kind of sucks, they should make it universally compatible.

    Yeah its a nice looking cooler. Its just so damn heavy. Can you imagine if this thing was made out of copper! Ill probably to go with a V1 instead. If nothing else but for how purty it looks :laugh:

    Edit: It is made of copper lol. My mistake.

    now that i think of it this would be great to cool a 4850e or a 5050e or any 45w AMD chip if it can be used with AM2 if not the only thing i can think of would be a Celeron-L or a E1200 maybe a E5200

    AXP-140 vs. SI-128

    It will be interesting to see what the AXP-140 can do, my Thermalright SI-128 will keep a Q6600, OC to 3.5 GHz in the low 50's Celsius at full load, and the SI-128 is 400 grams lighter.

    Looks like a direct rip off of the noctua NH-C12P that I have..

    I shouldn't bag TR though, they make some damn good H.sinks :)

    Thermalright's site only lists the weight as 550g, not 900g.

    Also, the base looks like the same bas as the Ultra-120, so I don't see why the AM2 mounting hardware from an Ultra-120 wouldn't work on the AXP-140, though I can't be sure without having the two directly in front of me.
