My System Specs

Default Stay T.R.U.E to yourself

Yeah corny title I know,

Tonight I retired the Sunbeam Core Contact in place of a ThermalRight Ultra 120 eXtreme push/pull config with 2 x Noctua NF-P12. Temps are way down about 8-10 degrees across all cores running the same test in the picture. The added fan and likely overall better cooler is a direct results of this, while the Sunbeam is an excellent cooler I think my setup, a poorly ventilated Antec P182 and the lack of additional airflow makes it an unsuitable heatsink for my system. Open cases results are even better temps drop even more about 5-7oC across all cores and idle temps while downclocked to 2.7GHz run near ambient at 23oC not too shabby, although it has been a little chilly here in Toronto.

So anyone out there looking for the ultimate in cpu cooling albeit the most expensive as it goes the ThermalRight Ultra120 eXtreme coupled with 2 x Noctua NF-P12's is where its at.

No it doesn't.

I ran a TRUE with a panaflo and a kaze 3000 and a yate loon and the yate loon performed just as well as the other two.

Static pressure, yate loons move air more effectively through an area with a greater resistance than a delta or Kaze 3000. CFM is important but its not the whole story to what makes a good fan, choosing the right fan for the right application is key.

TRUE with push pull is definitely a good air setup :)

We'll see how this compares to my IFX-14 push-thru-pull with 3x 140mm setup that'll be upcoming with my AM3 system. Might even use the backplate IFx-10 at the same time too, not sure about it yet.
