Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme Vs Zalman 9700

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I have 4-6 weeks to bide my time for a custom case to be finished with full WC but in the mean time I need some opinions.

I have the Zalman 9700 in my old air cooled PC but may buy the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme if its alot better.

Anyone had both and notice a difference?

the ultra extreme will depend I guess on the fan you put on it.
HERE are some results on it.

If you were to buy the thermalright ultra extreme AND the silverstone FM121 120mm fan, then you'd probably best allthose coolers on the list.
