My System Specs

Default A second look at the Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme

Well, it's confirmed...This thing kicks ass!

(This cooler) performs better than any of the 21 heatpipe towers recently tested at AnandTech. The eXtreme cools better than anything else we have tested. It was also nice to be reminded in this test of how small the Ultra-120 eXtreme really is compared to most other tower coolers. It is just as wide, but the eXtreme is compact in thickness, and you can actually mount the cooler on a socket 775 from above, without having to perform contortions better suited to a gymnast just to mount the cooler.


From Anandtech

Oh wow! If i wasn't into watercooling thats the one i'd be aiming at! Ocing a X6800 at almost 4Ghz and still getting such awesome load temps is not one common things for air cooling.
