By simply opening Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme box we were already impressed. We never saw a cooler package where the hardware is beautifully acomodated into a foam-filled box; usually parts are just dropped into a small box.But this good impression could...

The Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme CPU cooler makes the difference with its very interesting design, with a pre-installed 120mm fan embedded into the fins and its impressive dimensions. First of all, its retail package is full and includes mounting...

Tuniq's Tower 120 Extreme is an enthusiast grade heatsink that cools very well, pretty quietly. In fact I'll save you the suspense and tell you straight up that it tops Frostytech's Intel reference chart and that it's one of the Top 5...

Tuniq is one of several manufacturers to use direct-touch heat pipes to reduce latent heat and cooler weight. A finely sanded finish maintains excellent flatness for improved CPU contact, although grooves along each heat pipe’s edge...

Although the original Tower 120 was a real success because of its great for the time performance levels, the Tower 120 Extreme fails to impress with good but not great results. Had Tuniq added 2 fans in push and pull instead of a single...

When first unboxing the Tower 120 Extreme it is immediately evident that Tuniq have created a high end cooler. The weight gives it a quality feel when mixed with the good build quality; there are no flimsy or loose sections on this...

It’s difficult to place this cooler; on the one hand the performance was in the middle of the pack and able to compete with some big names in the industry but it’s not exactly going to push the boundaries and challenge the Cooler...

Video Review: The Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme CPU Cooler looks fantastic in it's all black theme. It has a quiet blue LED 120mm fan, 5 copper heatpipes, lots of aluminum fins, smooth base and includes TX-3 thermal compound. It also fits all current...

We had our doubts about this replacement for the Tuniq Tower 120, and they proved to be well founded. The cooler’s best results were achieved when bolted to an LGA775 socket, but even then the delta T temperatures were a way off what we’d...

Although this cooler performed well and offered good performance, I did have a little bit of a gripe with the installation process. For one thing, the positive stop method of holding the heatsink used on the original Tuniq tower was abandoned on this...

As stands this cooler is trying to be too many things and doesn’t end up doing any of them particularly well. If the 120 Extreme had shipped with a slower fan which was dead silent you would have an excellent silent PC cooler on your...

Tuniq stated from the start that the "Performance King" was back and knowing their work ethic, I had no doubt about that. Still, it's nice to see that the tests carried out can further contribute to their claims. Funnily enough, I haven't...

While all the coolers perform admirably, with the exception of the stock cooler, the Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme CPU Cooler comes out on top. This is ultimate evidence that the Core Contact heat pipe base is doing its job. In fact, it’s doing a very...

There are a lot of different products out there, and believe it or not we exclude a few from each article because they don't stack up well at all. So this is why you may not see some of the coolers other sites have tested in our results. Because of...

The Tuniq Tower Extreme is definitely one of our new favorite coolers here at Pro-Clockers. The design is a definite change from the typical tower design we see popping up every other day and that left a great first impression. It's a design not...
