I remember those monster Thermalright heatsinks; I had a pair of similar ones in my dual Athlon MP system. All copper, and you had to be gentle when moving the system around because the weight of the heatsinks could rip the tabs off the CPU sockets!.
I still love Thermalright. After confirming several spec questions with them (they responded to me within six hours from Germany via e-mail, I was quite impressed), I took one of the greatest pieces of hardware I've ever purchased:
The Thermalright TRUE Black 120, manufacured in 2008, a six-pipe copper `sink (then nickel plated and black anodized), originally for Sockets LGA775 and AM2 (an updated mounting kit was released, which has served with every Intel socket since), and mounted it -on an i9-9900K. Using two Noctua Redux 1300rpm (3-pin, so always running at max speed). Thermalright told me the unit can dissipate a massive 240 watts, which was unheard of eleven years ago. I believe them. Running all eight cores at 4.7GHz, 100% CPU load, no core goes higher than 80C. I have used this unit on one Core 2 Duo, three Core 2 Quads, an i5(Sandy), two i7s(Sandy and Devil's Canyon, and now the i9. How can you not like that?
