Thermaltake Tower 112 is better than BT and Tuniq??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm getting a cooling for my new Conroe rig.
I'm little short buget for WC so I'm going air.
I already have Thermaltake Big Typhoon for my old rig, and I personally think BT's age is kind of going away since Tuniq and all the other good Heatsinks came out.
I considered Tuniq too but its availability is very unlikely.
And I found some articles of Thermaltake Tower 112.
Usually copper finned heatsinks are better than aluminum finned heatsinks. For example Thermalright XP-90C is 3 times smaller than Tuniq, but Tuniq is only like 1c better than XP-90C because its copper finned.
Thermaltake Tower 112 is twice the size of Thermalright XP-90C and its is all copper finned.
And reviews and articles said if Thermaltake Tower 112 is armed with two 90mm fan about 50cfm pulling and pushing actually out performed BT and Tuniq.
So I'm thinking getting em but with way more higher cfm fans.
The guy at [H]ard forum went over 3700mhz on e6600 with Thermalright XP-90C so Tower 112 set might pass that.
I want to here opinions.

I can vouch for that. Mine does about 3-5C* better than a Tuniq Tower under load with about 75-80F room temp and with my side panel on. I expect it will do even better once the weather cools off a bit more.


*note: I have not actually tested a Tuniq Tower, but have compared it with test results using a 4GHz P4.
