Ultra 120-Extreme, is there better? - Page 4

post #31 of 54
ifx-14 with a high speed 140mm fan would be great for temps and for noise but a bit too big for some cases.

the TRUE is better than the IFX.
the only way for the IFX to compete is with 3 fans and only at very high heatloads.

or with the underplate accessory thing... which is sold separately and can be used with the TRUE as well.

At 1.325 Vcore (400x8) my cores idle between 15-20.

This website has a great set of reviews on coolers.

when the non extreme beats the xtreme...

you know that their testing methology must suck.

EVERY other place shows the extreme to be clearly superior

The underside cooler is NOT sold seperatly, it is included...

If you want the VERY best, get the IFX-14 with 3 140mm fans.

Would i even see much of a difference going from my Tuniq to a TRUE or a IFX-14, and would they fit in my case with the most number of fans possible?

(TRUE with 2 fans) or (IFX-14 with 3 x 120, or 140 )

Right now im running @ 3.0 at 28C

In Alaska, my sons 8400 actually registers at 23C (in bios), but I know better!
CoreTemp reads 52-53C (20C difference, best to err on the worst case scenario).
peace.

http://www.tankguys.com/product_info...ef0dd4cb123503
and I will call you out on that a the IFX-10 has it's own product page
http://www.thermalright.com/new_a_pa...er_ifx-10.html
and on that page it even shows it being used WITH a TRUE.

and it is apparently available in the EU quite readily. I myself am likely to pick one up when it comes stateside.

if you want a fair comparison you need to do IFX standalone vs. TRUE stand alone, or IFX with IFX10 or TRUE with IFX10.

will say though, the IFX is supposedly able to scale under REALLY high heatloads really well. It might work for say a a moderate wattage TEC... but if I were doing TECs like that I'd probably need several and chances are an extra loop would be more cost effective over a bunch of IFX-14s. Either that or it might be a candidate for air cooling a PXE 840... though i'd personally just go for a e2140 core celery if i had an old 840 since...

Don't mean to interrupt, and don't want to make claims about which cooler and fan is the absolute best, but just because reviews point out numbers and their environment, doesn't mean these conditions are equally meet in different climates, cases (with various venting).
All the forementioned coolers are above average. Its a matter of personal preference.
More importantly, what noise tolerance will you adjust to. These coolers can work better with higher CFM fans. Dual fans vs. single fans. Get the picture?

Yeah, you can just buy the underside cooler by itself, but it also comes included with the IFX-14, but not the TRUE.
