Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets
24 February 2010
  • Summary: By simply opening Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme box we were already impressed. We never saw a cooler package where the hardware is beautifully acomodated into a foam-filled box; usually parts are just dropped into a small box. But this good impression could have quickly gone away if the cooler didn't performed well, but it did not disapointed us, performing as good as some of the best coolers we tested so far.

  • Excerpt: I have yet to have any previous experiences with this manufacturer. The last thing we saw from the main partner, Sunbeamtech, was the CCF that Chris reviewed over a year ago. A division of the parent company is where Tuniq comes into play, and from what I can gather they are in the business of stripping off unnecessary components and trying to bring designs and concepts to the market that leave the end user with a minimalist, Zen-like feeling while observing and...

Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme CPU Cooler Review

14 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Thank mother nature in all her glory, the hot summer seems to have finally subsided up here in the Pacific Northwest. All of my poor test bench systems were wheezing on some of the hottest air ever recorded. Most of the retail coolers were just getting by whirring away at their fastest speed.

  • Summary: The Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme had some hurdles to overcome when I started testing it. The apprehension I had about the weight of the cooler was put to rest by the sturdy mounting system,; it really does not seem to stress the motherboard at all like I had feared. The mysterious fan noise that was giving me a world of trouble for the first 10 days has subsided, leaving me to believe that it had something to do with uneven lubrication of the fan bearing that may have worked...

Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme CPU Cooler Review

26 September 2009
  • Conclusion: It costs around RM 230 or so but it certainly is BEAUTIFUL! From my POV – getting this heatsink would mean forking out not just for heat dissipation but also for the looks. I like it in terms of appearance and performance BUT I really hate the mounting process, especially for one like myself who switches processors and does experiments. I could remove and mount the CCF 92mm with ease but not with this one.

Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme

15 February 2011
  • Conclusion: It’s difficult to place this cooler; on the one hand the performance was in the middle of the pack and able to compete with some big names in the industry but it’s not exactly going to push the boundaries and challenge the Cooler Master’s and Noctua’s. It is however very good noise wise and much more acceptable in comparison to many of the high end designs which tend to utilise powerful and noisy fans.
  • Pros: Reasonable performance, Quite quiet, Build quality, Aesthetics
  • Cons: Performance not able to challenge the best coolers, Price

  • Conclusion: The Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme CPU cooler makes the difference with its very interesting design, with a pre-installed 120mm fan embedded into the fins and its impressive dimensions. First of all, its retail package is full and includes mounting mechanisms for both Intel/AMD sockets for greater flexibility and compatibility. The bundled fan controller is also very useful allowing you to adjust the cooler's R. P.M.
  • Cons: Cannot be upgraded with a second fan like other differently designed coolers, High noise levels when fan is operating at full R. P.M.

Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme

3 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Der Tower 120 Extreme weiß nicht nur mit seiner Optik zu überzeugen. So kann der neue Kühler von Tuniq von Anfang an überzeugen, was sich schon beim gut durchdachten Lieferumfang zeigt, welcher auch noch sehr gut verpackt ist. Bei der Verarbeitung liefert Tuniq ebenso überzeugende Arbeit ab und so macht der Tower 120 Extreme einen sehr guten optischen Eindruck.
  • Pros: gute Verarbeitung, Lüfter kann über beiliegende Lüftersteuerung geregelt werden, einfache Montage, gute Kühlleistung....
  • Cons: ...die bei geringen Drehzahlen etwas schlechter wird, Geräuschkulisse bei hohen Drehzahlen recht laut, es kann nur ein Lüfter montiert werden
