Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme NEWS Release
In 2006, Thermalright released the Ultra-120 and ever since then it's been classified as one of the top air cooling heatsinks for many high end systems. With its large cooling capacity, vast compatibility across multiple platforms, and easy installation; it's easy to see why. But at Thermalright, it's never our intention to stop when success has been reached, so we keep pushing the envelope. In 2007, Intel and AMD came out with new quad core CPUs and our response? Ultra-120 eXtreme!!
Ultra-120 eXtreme inherited all the advantages of its predecessor and increased its ability to absorb heat faster and better by having 6 heatpipes. It doesn't matter which processor you use; a Socket 775 processor (single core, Core 2 Extreme or Core 2 Quad) there is nothing our Ultra-120 eXtreme cannot handle. Of course, that also applies to all Socket AM2 processors. Just as for Intel platforms, the Ultra-120 eXtreme also includes spring loaded bolt screws to ensure a tight and secure heatsink installation on the socket.
In addition, we took care of the concerns expressed by our users in regards to Ultra-120 backplate. For the eXtreme version, we added a non-conductive plastic padding to shield all electrical contact in preventing a short circuitry. So go ahead and choose any type of motherboard you want; whether chips by Intel or Nvidia's 680i series. It is sure to be safe with Ultra-120 eXtreme.
Right before this formal announcement of Ultra-120 eXtreme, it was tested by one of the most revered hardware sites as they validated our claim that you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars when the Ultra-120 eXtreme can cool your CPU just as good, if not better, than your average water-cooling system.
So you think your current heatsink cooler has reached its limit? Thinking about switching to water cooling? Before you do anything, test out an Ultra-120 eXtreme. You will see that records are meant to be broken as new records and standards are set.
