    Thermalright True Copper

    However, it's just equal to(if not worse than) Prolimatech Megahalems/Megashadows and put much more pressures on your motherboard.

    Quote:
    Prolimatech Megahalems/Megashadow: 790g

    Thermalright True Copper: 1900g


    In addition, the Thermalright True Copper is VERY VERY expensive and requires you to buy the LGA1156 bracket.
