Thermalright Ultra-120 vs Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme
 
Whats the difference between a Thermalright Ultra-120 & a Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme?

They both look exactly the same to me! ... whats the difference? is there any real major performance increase?

The extreme model has 6 heatpipes ,the prior version has 4 ,it made a small positive difference in anandtechs comparisons.I love mine tbh,using a titan aluframe 2200 rpm 74 cfm fan on it atm.

I think its worth it. If you're spending $50 on a heatsink, spend $60 and get a slightly better version.

Or you could be like me and catch free handouts from awesome guys like Mullet. :D

Anybody with a Thermalright Ultra-120 with a 3.0GHz or more overclock care so share there voltage, 120mm fan model and idle and load temps?

Same to anybody with a Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme?..... if you have a 3.0GHz or more overclock please share your voltage, 120mm fan model and idle and load temps!

Thanks.

X6800 Extreme @ 3.6Ghz, stock voltage, Scythe S-FLEX SFF21E 1200rpm.
Idle: 37-40C
Load: 46C

I could probably go up to the SFF21F, system is silent, VERY SILENT. :)

Its the best air cooling out at the moment ,but at the price its at now I'd prefer to go for budget water cooling.

Idle and load @ 1333 fsb/3ghz ,temps remain the same for 1400fsb/3.15 fsb but thats as far as it will go on default voltage.

Ambient temp around 20-21 c
Idle

Im using this fan for it but it was a bit of a headache to mount it as the frame is solid alu,had to cut slots in it for the fasterners.Looks nice though :p

Well i have a Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme a VANTEC THERMOFLOW 120mm 1300 - 2200RPM(54.3 - 92 CFM) & a tube of arctic silver 5 all on the way!

Lets see what a difference it makes! :cool:

Let us know how you get on. I've got an Ultra120-extreme in it's box waiting to be fitted - just cba to take out the mobo to do it despite my processor temps going up to 70 under ortho load. You might inspire me to fit it when I put in my new xi-fi. And having read that Anandtech review, I'm even more inclined to do it.
