ThermalRight Ultra 120 Extreme PC CoolerThe ThermalRight Ultra 120 Extreme Cooler is a large kit that expands on the quality of ThermalRight’s Ultra 120.  When you open the box, you’ll find the quite large Ultra 120 eXtreme unit, along with mounting hardware. As with most of Thermalright’s products, the Ultra 120 eXtreme is developed to be used in combinations with just about all of Intel and AMD’s recent models, including Intel’s new LGA 1366 socket to support Intel Core i7 965XE/940/920 processors. If you own an AMD AM2 board, you will have to make an extra purchase of the AM2 back metal plate. Remember that it’s best to check the motherboard compatibility list before making a purchase.  From the bottom to the tip of the heat pipe, the Ultra 120 Extreme stands 16.3cm. Being a huge cooler, it is best to also measure from the socket to where you will attach the case side panel, to ensure there’s enough free space before purchasing.

A great function of the Ultra 120 eXtreme is its ability to mount in many different positions, such as facing up, down, to the right or left of the motherboard. This gives you the flexibility to mount it in a way that you can direct the warm air out of the case. ThermalRight’s Ultra 120 and Ultra 120 Extreme do not come with a fan included. This can be a good thing because some users like to purchase a specific fan for their particular needs.  Your results can depend on the fan you choose, though, therefore consider selecting a high-end model to match the high-end cooling system.  One excellent option that was tested with this cooler is the Scythe S-Flex 800 RPM. The fan, in combination with ThermalRight’s Ultra 120 eXtreme, performed well enough to get within 1 degree Celsius of Thermaltake’s best cooler that was running at 1250 RPM.

The ThermalRight Ultra Extreme 120 is a very impressive cooling system when the right fan is selected.  The cooler may be considered pricy since it sells for $60 before buying the fan, but it will be well worth it for many users due to its low-noise and solid performance.

ASUS Triton 81 CPU Cooler for X58 SystemsASUS has released its first CPU cooler for the soon to be released Intel Core i7 platform. The ASUS Triton 81 offers a 90mm fan that functions between 800 RPM and 2,500 RPM, with a noise level of 18 dBA during normal operation.  The cooler is controlled by the motherboard’s PWM, and presents a blue glows when running.  ASUS’s Triton 81 is constructed of copper, and includes copper heatpipes that link its base with the fins.  The unit weighs 24.16oz, and supports Intel (sockets 1366 and 775) and AMD (sockets 939/940/1207/AM2/AM2+) motherboards.  Pricing and availability information has not yet been announced.

The Thermaltake Xpressar RCS100 Micro Refrigeration Cooling System is similar in concept to the VapoChill Vapor Phase-Change Cooling systems.  Thermaltake’s approach differs by utilizing a DC Inverter micro compressor for cooling the PC.  Vapor-compression refrigeration has been the predominant method for air-conditioning large public buildings, residences, hotels, hospitals, theaters, restaurants, and vehicles.  Thermaltake claims to be the first company to use this design for the PC.  The system circulates a liquid refrigerant to absorb and remove heat from the area to be cooled and neutralizes the heat elsewhere. 

The Xpressar RCS100 cools a CPU 20 degrees lower than liquid cooling. Thermaltake’s Xpressar RCS100 is also equipped with a custom controller to prevent condensation.  The system has been tested to work with various Gigabyte, MSI, and Asus motherboards.  It is likely the system works with many other motherboards as well, but they are not officially tested by Thermaltake.
