Default Ultra-120 Extreme what paste

those that have the Ultra-120 Extreme, what paste did you use? Artic Silver 5 or that paste that Thermalright included?

they make one hell of heatsink, so maybe they did include some good paste?

Sweet

Looking at the pictures on Newegg it looks like it comes with paste, but I would use either as5 or stg1. They perform just about the same. Not sure of the thermalright stuff.

I ordered a tuniq tower 120 maybe we can compare temps.

This is what I ordered

Default Re: Ultra-120 Extreme what paste

i would have installed it yesterday, but i have to remove the board

from all the reviews i seen Ultra-120 extreme performs better then tuniq

i will post my temps, but to get accurate comparisons it would have to be same system at same location.

room temps make a hugge difference.

I like Ceramique, Thats a nice fan as well probably cant get one over here ,The Ultra-120 extreme is the best air cooling going at the moment and the only big cooler that will allow me to fit my ocz memory cooler because its very slim, there just isnt enough clearance with any other heatpipe tower cooler on a p5b.

I found this cooler at Puget Custom Computer for $56.95 and that's where I purchased mine. Should be here on Monday. Does anyone know how much improvement I should see going from Thermaltake Big Typhoon to the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme? Did I make a wise decision in acquiring it to replace my Typhoon?

Definitely, the Ultra 120 Extreme has worked well for me. Edit: AS5. Btw, on the Newegg reviews for that fan, it says the fan holes are incompatible for the Ultra 120 Extreme. Just something to note.

I don't know if it's true or not.

I finally broke down and got one. Thermalright has always produced the best coolers overall for me. However, I was a little disappointed this time. For $60 you do get one BIG cooler. But I found the contact plate not up to their usual standards as it was not totally flat. It took some block sanding with 220, 400, 800, and 1000 to get it right. I don't require a mirror finish but I do want the contact area flat so to be able to transfer as much heat as possible.

Oh, I will be using AS5!
