Default Ultra ChillTEC CPU Cooler review by TechGage

TechGage review this oversized TEC CPU cooler and gauges its performance against the Zalman 9700 and stock Intel cooling.



"At the end of the day, the Ultra ChillTEC is an OEM product from a manufacturer one can only assume is in China. The cooler is exactly the same as the Vigor TEC cooler, but with an Ultra badging. This is really a non issue but it is something that with a little effort from the engineers at Ultra, can be truly Ultra’s own. They could redesign the control module to allow the user the ability to control the power going to the TEC. This would add quite a bit of bite to a solidly designed product that Ultra already has.
With all that said, the Ultra ChillTEC earns a 7 our of 10.
  • Pros
  • Solid construction
  • Good looks
  • Decent usage of peltiers
  • Cons
  • Worthless 5.25" bay module
  • Complete lack of control over the TEC
  • Cyclic fan speed increase "
