Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme & IFX-14

Final Words and Conclusion
 
Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme
The Ultra-120 eXtreme is a very high quality and world class performing CPU cooler. Thermalright have clearly placed a lot of time and resources into making the high class appearance match the excellent cooling performance. Soldering all contact points as well as nickel plating every part of the cooler is a time and money consuming process, especially a unit this size. While the Ultra-120 eXtreme is a world class CPU cooler it is actually relatively competitively priced as well. Since the Ultra 120 eXtreme is one of the highest quality coolers an enthusiast can buy it deserves our Gold Award.

Thermalright IFX-14

The quality of the IFX-14 is undoubtedly excellent but the cooler is massive and a little complex, bearing in mind so far we have only seen slightly better thermal performance than the (smaller and simpler) Ultra-120 eXtreme. The smaller IFX-10 cooler section is a nice addition but it can also cause problems with high end PSUs, and we strongly believe that the vast majority of the users who would buy such a cooler have a very high output PSU as well.

Ironically, the monstrous IFX-14 is cheaper than the more compact Ultra-120 eXtreme! It seems that the IFX-14 is designed only for those who want to squeeze every last ounce of performance from their system – the extreme overclockers and hardcore enthusiasts.

Despite this we cannot ignore that the quality of the IFX-14, and it is the highest performance air-cooler we have ever seen. The issues we mentioned just stop it from achieving our highest award however it comfortably earns our Editors Choice Award.
