Default MadShrimps`June CPU Heatsink Roundup

This is a continuation of MadShrimps`roundup of the good, bad, and ugly of CPU heatsinks- for this round they`ve added five more heatsinks to their list. The Thermalright Ultra 120 which was conspicuously missing is now there as well.

Here is the complete list:

Intel Reference S775 Heatsink
Coolermaster Eclipse
Coolermaster Mars
Coolermaster Hyper TX
Scythe Ninja
Titan Amanda TEC
Zalman CNPS9700LED
Coolermaster GeminII
Scythe ANDY Samurai Master
Scythe Kama Cross
Scythe Katana 2
Tuniq Tower 120

the 5 heatsinks added to the comparison:

Thermalright Ultra-120 A
Thermalright SI-128

Here is their summary of the top-contender- The Ultra 120:

Thermalright Ultra-120: Thermalright’s Ultra-120 proves itself as the best Intel S775 heatsink out there, the Tuniq Tower 120 comes close, but in the end there can be only one. With the NCB at high speed the Ultra-120 is only .5C away from the Zalman CNPS9700LED which is producing a high pitched noise of 60+dBA, more than twice as loud as the NCB fan. Add a high performance fan to the Ultra-120 and CPU temperatures drop to an amazing 40C. When we reduce the NCB fan speed to “low” setting the Ultra-120 remains very competitive, coming in first of the NCB powered HSF, on par (~0.5C) with the Scythe Ninja. Whether you’re looking for high performance or low noise the Ultra-120 delivers on S775.
