Thermalright Ultra-120 Series CPU Coolers
The Ultra-120 Series features a patent-pending design of the fins. In every corner of every fin, a winglet is created. This bending of the corners creates an increased air pressure and in return decreases air resistance, so even with a low RPM fan you get massive air flow through the fins. The user can attach any 120mm fan or 92mm fan (depending on cooler) and watch those high CPU temperatures go way down. With a low fan RPM, the cooler is extremely quiet but performance remains, which is what you would expect from a high-end CPU cooler.
Each heatsink uses U-shaped heatpipes to transfer the heat from the base of the cooler up and through the attached fins, maximising the heat transfer. But thats not all, due to the winglet design mentioned earlier; it also increases the surface area. All these features translates into more cooling power than any other Thermalright CPU cooler.
The differences between the Ultra-120 A and the Ultra-120 Extreme are not so easy to notice. The heatsinks are virtually identical with the only difference being that the Extreme version has two extra U-shaped heatpipes. These additional heatpipes help to transfer the heat away from the CPU even faster, making it one of Thermalright's most effective CPU coolers!
