Tuniq Tower 120: Air Cooling to the Max

@ 2007/01/15
The Tuniq Tower 120 is one example of this. As imposing as the multi-finned, heat-piped Tuniq looks it is worth keeping in mind that the total cost of the Tuniq kit is only about $50. The question we will try to answer in this review is whether the Tuniq is effective at improving CPU cooling? If so, does the improved cooling allow higher overclocks than a stock cooling solution? Finally, the impact on system noise will be measured.

our in-house Tuniq Tower 120 test can be found here: http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=get...&articID=4 19

Our own test room, with all computers and fans turned off, has a room noise level of 36.4dB
most likely they mean dBA, but as you can see, it's not a <16dBA result
heatsink tested outside a case as far as I can tell from the article... not representative of real world performance; also FarCry doesn't really heat up the CPU as much as dedicated applications like S&M and K7 Burn. Why wasn't the stock fan tested @ low speed ? //end rant
