Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme CPU Cooler Rev1


The performance king has returned!  The much praised Tuniq Tower 120 has gone through a radical redesign and not only looks cooler but its performance has been boosted.  The unique wave-like fins display a tremendous visual impact and increase the air-contact area for an unprecedented thermal performance.  The nickel-plated surface combined with the LED fan creates a breath taking visual effect!

To ensure that the maximum cooling performance is obtained, we have also included our highest performing thermal compound, the TX-3. Furthermore, our unique adjustable fan controller places the control in your hands!
