Default Being second isn't a familiar position for cooling powerhouse Thermalright

Fast forward to recent times, the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme was the undisputed king of aircooling, until companies such as Thermolab and Prolimatech came along with their tower heatsinks that performed better than the TRUE. Of course, being in second position wasn't a familiar place for Thermalright, and they did a quick counter-attack by introducing a revised Ultra-120 Extreme with peforated heatsink plates the shape of a small triangle to reduce airflow resistance (known as Rev. C). Performance did improve and results were on par with the latest heatsinks on the market, but now, consumers have the option of choosing between brands. Thermalright was no longer the one-and-only brand when it came to the best performance air cooling products.

Today, sitting in our labs is the Thermalright Venomous X, the successor to the long-time warrior Ultra-120 Extreme. Let's start on our journey to see if the Venomous X has the metal? mettle? metal? hmm. to take it to the top.
