Tuniq gives us a really nice looking cooler. Unique fin patterns, staggering the sizes of the heat pipes, use of a black nickel coating, and a heart of blue LED lighting from the fan make the Tower 120 Extreme a very appealing addition to any chassis. Where I do have an issue is in the price versus performance category of my sample. There are many coolers on the list that perform as well, if not better than my Tuniq, and at a lower retail price.
Reflecting back to the whole package, I like the innovative approach in design as I stated, but I think I could have overlooked the temperatures a bit more if this fan actually ran anywhere near the rated noise level, or the CFM levels for that matter. For me the fan was a good looking let down. It makes for an awesome looking glow on the system, but fails to do the main purpose of why it is there in the first place.
I implore Tuniq to show me I am wrong on this, and maybe send another fan over and I will be more than happy to rerun the testing, but as it sits, I'm left with a disappointed feeling. I was all for everything that Tuniq presented to me on paper, and with the super secure packing and condition of my packing, I can't see the fan getting hurt during transit, but it is always possible something slipped past the QC guys. As the results stand, I cannot honestly recommend that you go out and get the Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme cooler for Newegg's $59.99 asking price when better results can be had both in noise and performance with a Xigmatek Dark Knight at just over half the price. If a sexy cooler with a unique look is a must, no matter the results, by all means go and buy one, but as of now, I'm not spending my money here.
