Check out anand's review of Thermalright's new cpu cooler. What a monster!

yeah, i read that...definitely would be my first choice now. anandtech seem do be doing alot of good reviews lately

They have taken a strong position as my 2nd favorite review site. The forums over there suck though. :wink:

That is impressive!! 8O 8O 8O

Some of those temps are down right awesome!!
March 9, 2007 4:47:37 PM

I either missed it or it is not there at all...

Was there a projected price for the extreme?

I didn't see one either, it looks like we will have to wait till it hits shelves.

Hum. I might buy this just to OC my Pentium 60. Think I can get 2.4ghz?

Anyway, website shows problems installing this with Gigabyte Mobos... dang i have an S3.
March 9, 2007 4:58:42 PM

I know right, I was reading it several days ago. Thanks to the massive amount of heatpipes the Ultra 120+ is a great improvement from the first version. I'm waiting for Frostytech to test these new cpu cooler for themselves.

Really! Thats surprising, what's the problem?
March 9, 2007 5:04:38 PM

its probably not gigabyte boards, probably ones with the back-plate...probably (anadtech is down for me so i cant check)
March 9, 2007 5:04:59 PM

a back plate riser that gigabyte uses. it goes in to detail on their website.
March 9, 2007 5:10:55 PM

Wow those are some crazy temps... almost 4GHz on air and still less than 50C under load...

I was wondering how Anandtech got 36C with their Tuniq at load. When I did my load temps measurement, I used TAT, which gave me 46C. Anandtech doesn't use TAT, they use a game

Quote:
The stress test simulates running a demanding contemporary game. The Far Cry River demo is looped for 30 minutes and the CPU temperature is captured at 4 second intervals with the NVIDIA monitor "logging" option. The highest temperature during the load test is then reported


I thought I didn't seat my Tuniq properly (which was weird because I have a similar idle temp as Anandtech's review.

In gaming, I get 38C, very similar to Anandtech's results.

Yeah that new Ultra 120 is cool! It's nice to see that the performance curve keeps improving!

Didnt i post this like 2 days ago?

It is an awesome hsf, but I dont think the thing would fit in my case, too tall.

Quite possibly, I was out of town earlier this week and probably missed it. My apologies if this is the case. :oops: 

Still, a great cooler, no?
March 9, 2007 6:34:30 PM

the thermalright makes me very slightly want to return my tuniq(i haven't installed it yet). but both coolers are really a cut above the rest.

Yeah, if you've already got the tuniq in hand, I don't think the performance difference is worth the drive back to the store.
March 9, 2007 8:47:54 PM

What about compounding both heat syncs? Wouldn't that double the amount of cooling?


use this equation where t(u) and t(h) are each heat syncs.


dG = -SdT + VdP + ∑µdN(sub i) x (t(u)/t(h))/∑α


works out to a factor of 1.4 which would be worth it.
March 9, 2007 8:55:39 PM

huh....only one heat sink fits on a cpu...
March 9, 2007 9:39:22 PM

very good scores but how does that compare to water seeing as how good they are?
March 9, 2007 9:50:32 PM

water cooling costs more and cools more

you dont say "huh" to the mathematics of thermal dynamics, you say "huh" to combining both heat syncs... funny!
March 9, 2007 11:00:32 PM

I would like to first see the price, $60 should be good for it.

why's that funny?:/ i dont think i get the combination of heatsinks either:/
March 9, 2007 11:14:39 PM

I was not being serious either way, though the math is mostly correct.

The most elaborate mathematical demonstration is worthess if based on a wrong hypothesis.

Is the Ultra120 plus on sale yet? Does it fit inside the Antec900 case or the Thermaltake Armor case, even with their sidefans installed?
March 11, 2007 7:41:19 PM

looks like ill be switching my tuniq out for this one as soon it comes out.
March 12, 2007 12:44:06 AM

what are your temps now?

idle at 30c max load at 46C. i know getting this cooler will only drop the temps a few degrees more from the tuniq but i just wanna have the lowest possible temps with air cooling cause i plan to take my overclock even further once i get some different memory.
March 12, 2007 9:35:11 PM

anyone know the release date on this new cooler?
March 13, 2007 2:14:02 PM

Are these temps accurate, do you think? Zalman cooler outperforming an Infinity?
March 13, 2007 2:23:16 PM

If you are loading at 46C now, you have at least one (0.125) maybe two (0.250) voltage increases before your temps start hindering your OC...
March 13, 2007 2:28:18 PM

Nothing wrong with a 6600 Oc'd to 3.0ghz @ 100c
March 13, 2007 2:33:19 PM

:? He has an E6400 and it's at 3.2ghz and only 46C...
March 13, 2007 8:10:09 PM

zalmann is garbage. get a tuniq, schythe or thermalright.

yeah thats what i was thinking, my memory is holding me back right now, 667 :(  , but soon ill have some 800. i still wanna get the thermalright just to have the best though.
March 13, 2007 8:28:04 PM

Ah didn't see you had 667 memory.

It's your call but for ~$60 and a gain or loss of a couple degrees isn't worth it to me. Are you running at 1:1 right now?
March 13, 2007 9:00:36 PM

Once, I had a band, and at band camp I over clocked by trombone to 144db. Funny thing is, I got banned from band camp; how ironic.

yeah its 1:1.

Actually speaking of review site I have always liked hardocp and then probably anandtech. toms has the best forums though. 8)

Tuniq Tower 120+ anyone :lol:  .
March 14, 2007 1:50:40 AM

That cooler is taller than Mid tower specs. Unless you have a cube case or open case seems rather pointless.
March 14, 2007 2:54:45 AM

I have a tuniq tower 120 and it fits in my mid tower. That is if your referring to me.

ByDesign, the Tuniq Tower 120+ doesn't exist, therefore you can't claim that it doesn't fit in mid-tower case.

LX_Flier's remark was that Sunbeam should work on an improved version of the Tuniq Tower 120, in order to compete with the excellent new air coolers coming out on the market.
