Thermalright IFX-14 CPU Cooler Review
 
CPU coolers keep growing in size, this monster from Thermalright is proof of that. The Inferno Fire eXtinguisher is a heatsink large enough to accommodate up to three 140mm fans! Furthermore it comes with a separate smaller heatsink which sole purpose is to keep the backside of the CPU socket cool. Will this powerhouse CPU cooler grab first spot in our performance charts? Time to find out!

A Q6600 at 1.6V above 3 Ghz would be bette to test, 138W isn't that much for todays quadcore standards. I like those passive results tought.

Jmke has been using Prescott all the way, it's not easy repeating every test, again and again, whenever a new generation of CPU's hit your local retailer. The Prescott is off the older generation Prescott CPU's and does produce quite an amount of heat for heatsinks to deal with, heck the high differences in our chart. Why would you want to use 1,6V with your air cooled Q6600, do you really want that extra clock in favor of such high voltage?

125W stock, Overclocked and overvoltet, a lot more is possible.

125W for Q6600? the QX6750 scores lower? what about QX9750 and QX9770 ?

Nice!
But I think if one has the Ultra 120 Extreme there is no real need to upgrade to the IFX, is there?

jmke 11th February 2008 19:53

will be testing the Ultra-120 eXtreme soon, not sure if the IFX-14 is an upgrade;)

Argh, was thinking that was the Extreme in those results. Was a shocking difference between the regular and the Extreme versions, so I suspect the IFX-14 isn't going to last very long at the top of those results....
