My System Specs

Default Thermalright Ultra120 eXtreme 1366RT CPU COOLER Preview

It appears Thermalright is gearing up for the release of the Core i7 and their preview release of a TRUE in the flavour of a socket 1366 format. Most notable in a Thermalright exclusive and for the first time ever ( I have seen) it includes a fan with a proper bracket and no flimsy wire clips. I encourage you to read the FAQ section it contains valuable information for current TRUE owners and puts to rest any concern of having to buy an entirely new heatsink.

A quick pic, for more information please visit: Ultimate CPU Cooling Solutions! USA

Wow nice find, thanks. I know I read that in one of the reviews I read, it kept the cpu under good temp. And that is one bold move from Thermalright, fan with a proper mounting scheme..

Great.

I hope that fan is any good though, it dosn't look all that decent to me upon visual; we'll see - I'd probably still swap it out and considering I have TWO TRUE's sitting here, if they don't increase the base size I'll just keep my current ones and swap brackets LOL

I was thinking the same thing Encorp! I rather have (not so) "flimsy" wires for a mounting system than some lowest bidder, OEM, proprietary mounting crap. :(

EDIT....just RTFM'ed it and the fan is a FDB fan...though its running @ 1600RPM (Scythe F speeds). Specs sounds good for high performance...just wonder how good it sounds ;)

I think the new fan you are seeing is a normal fan in a special housing...it looks like you can use any 120mm fan with standard depth.

No doubt you can, you just have to buy mountain wires/brackets for it now too lol, I actually prefer to buy my fans seperate because rarely are the ones that come with coolers exactly what EVERYONE wants.

I like the plastic holder actually. Whenever I installed a fan wire onto a Thermalright cooler (GPU or CPU) I always felt like I had ten thumbs and wanted to throw the damn thing against a wall.
