Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme CPU Cooler Review
15 March 2008
Conclusion: The Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme is a great choice for a CPU cooler and performs as expected, very well overall. I'll be honest though it's not as great as I expected it to be, from all of the hype I've read about the TRUE I expected super low temperatures and the TRUE to blow every cooler I've got away, but that didn't happen here in my testing.
Summary: Like the Ultra-120 that came before it, the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme applies fairly simple concepts to yield a well performing tower heatsink that doesn't have to generate much noise to get the job done.
Conclusion: There is literally nothing wrong with this cooler – excellent temperatures, easy install and silent operation – that is until you come to the price. It retails for £50 which is a fair ol’ amount of beer money. Considering as the Coolink Silentator isn’t far behind/has similar temperatures AND includes a near silent (mulnaz) fan, AND is cheaper, I think that the Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme will be left off most peoples shopping list.
Pros: Excellent temperatures, Near silent operation, Easy installation
