Default IFX-14 or Ultra-120 eXtreme

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/56...l?tl=g40c14s52

or

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/56...l?tl=g40c14s52

Ultra-120 eXtreme is out of stock at FrozenCPU, but does anyone know where else to get it? And is IFX-14 better and never than Ultra-120 eXtreme? Oh, and does the IFX-14 use the fan clip like Ultra120 eXtreme do?

Opinions please.

The IFX-14 can be better with the right fan configuration, but the thing is huge. It would not fit in my case with the heatpipe that runs underneath the motherboard.

I could research on mine. But I want to know if IFX-14 is better than Ultra 120 or not.

If you use two fans on the IFX-14, one on each heatsink tower, then yes. If you don't, then its design isn't being fully used, making it the same if not worse then the Ultra-120 Extreme
