Tuniq Tower 120 is still the king CPU cooler.

Actually I'm pretty sure the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme out cools any other air cooler.

I looked in zalman's site and it does not seem they have any coolers for the Quad, only Dual Cores (for example the 9700)

Will look for reviews about the 2 other options tho, thanks for the information.

-edit - too bad none of the 2 options are available over here, guess it will be a freezer 7 pro for me


The options I have are Freezer 7 Pro and Scythe Ninja Plus
I assume the ninja will perform better?

I wish I knew how my XP-90 stacked up against the Ultra 120 Extreme. I know the extreme will be quieter (with a Scythe SFlex fan) and cooler, but for close to $70 with a fan, thats pretty crazy. Next time I upgrade I'm either using my XP-90 or getting the ultra 120 extreme. Theres really no point in considering any other coolers... I just don't know HOW big the difference would be.

my estimate would be your XP-90 because it only has 92mm fan, it would be somewhere between Zalman 9500 and 9700 series.

I want to get Ultra-120 extreme, but i can't find one in stock anywhere right now

The only place I've seen it in stock was Jab-tech, but that only lasted a day or two.

Personally, I'd wait.

The reviews on NewEgg point to some quality control issues right now. Such as warped bases that are clearly not flat (which totally ruins the heatsink's performance) and some heat pipes not being fully soldered to the base.

I'm sure these will clear up pretty quickly once they get into full production though.

Looking at a comparison between all these coolers, I see a scythe Infinity performs same with idle temps and better with load temps (im talking all with stock fans) than the Ninja

The Infinity also costs a bit more, tho it has only 5 heat pipes vs 6 for the ninja

The bottom line is it performs better than the ninja (all with stock fans) so I guess it would be the better choice? (since the only other option is a freezer 7 pro)?

Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme (not an option)
Tuniq Tower 120 (not an option)

Options, first is best:
1) Scythe Infinity
2) Scythe Ninja Plus
3) Freezer 7 Pro

edit - the infinity is 960g which doesnt appeal to me, now I am not sure what to go with...

make sure you pair it with a good fan, good fan makes a big difference
