Exclamation Thermalright Ultra-120 vs Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme

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

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.

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.

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



Load



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

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.
