Default anyone heard of this cpu cooler?

Tuniq - Tower 120 Cooler

it looks greatly improving over Ultra 120 extreme (non true black)


hard to believe?

i mean look at this result (this is best result that i can show for now...)

little different than what the site displays...


it cost 46.xx cdn at ncix... i think its very good value compare to U120 extreme



so do you agree... or disagree?

But gets overshadows by the newer coolers...it was good a couple years back but the TRUE took it's turf. Not worth it now.

Agree, but only if you are a hardcore OC-er and those 3-4-5C in full-load matter.
But if you are a casual clocker and you want to keep some money in pocket then Tuniq is (still) a great option.

Agreed, while not the best it's still a good option. I've seen many people with it in their rigs. It was one of my main choices when I built my current rig. I ended up going with the TRUE though.

Yeah, I agree with most of you. The Tuniq is a great cooler but it just can't stack up to the newer and better coolers now. Just a few months ago, it was considered the 2nd best cooler out there behind the TRUE. But then came along the innovation of H.D.T...
