I have not been able to find any review that talks about what an engineer would ask about thermal solutions

I have been avoiding extreme power processors and the Phenom I have now is actually even more of a power pig than my old Athlon I was using years ago. The old Athlon was 65W while the Phenom is 125W.

So I buy a giant cooler to deal with noise and my Phenom runs fine even at stock speed. I can overclock to 4 GHz and no problem.

So I see some faster processors but they are 220W power pigs which is quite a bit more load than my Phenom even overclocked.

So can my Hyper 212 handle the load of the FX 9000 power pigs?
