Conclusion

Although Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme doesn’t work miracles, it boasts very successful combination of features that will definitely be noticed by overclocking enthusiasts. Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme is as efficient as one of the best solutions using heatpipe direct touch technology, and the noise it produces at 1300-1350 RPM remains more than moderate and at 1050 RPM or lower – very quiet. Moreover, the cooler is universal, comes with reliable and convenient retention, uniquely shaped heatsink, beautiful transparent fan with blue LEDs and rotation speed controller, and is accompanied with a tube of new Tuniq TX-3 thermal compound. The recommended retail price of $59.90 is comparable to the price tag of competing solutions that is why I have no doubts that the Extreme Tower will find its niche in the crowded cooling market.

Even with all these advantages in mind, we could like to suggest a few improvements that could make Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme even more efficient and successful. For example, it would be nice to be able to install a second fan for air exhaust and at the same time change the rotation speed range for both fans from the current 1000-2000 RPM to more efficient 600-1600 RPM. I am sure that the cooling efficiency could improve significantly if they made the gaps between the heatpipes in the cooler base even smaller or removed the aluminum inserts completely (coolers like that are already starting to appear). At the same time, it would be good to distribute the heatpipes more evenly over the heatsink body, so that it could be used more effectively. Hopefully, the next model of the Tuniq tower cooler won’t take four years to come out. And as for the new Tuniq Propeller 120 top-cooler, we hope to get our hands on one shortly, so bear with us :)
