PHYSICAL DETAILS & INSTALLATION: Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme Rev.C

The Ultra-120 eXtreme Rev.C is a nickel-plated six heatpipe cooler weighing approximately 730 grams and standing 161 mm tall by our measurements. We won't bore you with many pictures as it is very difficult to distinguish the body of the Rev.C from the Rev.B or the original.

A "V" shaped hole punched through the heatsink and a fin count reduction from 53 to 47 are the only visible differences between the Rev.C and the original. The fin spacing is slightly larger which should help low airflow cooling performance.

An AMD backplate and mounting frame are included in the package. As the heatsink overhangs the mounting holes, a small wrench is provided to secure the bolts.

An important distinction of the TRUE Rev.C from the vast majority of coolers for AMD: It can be mounted rotated 90°. This means regardless of the orientation of the CPU socket and heatsink mounting frame on the motherboard, the cooler can be mounted with its fan pointing toward the back panel (as usually perferred) or pointing up.

On Intel boards, a pair of metal brackets are used to secure the backplate. By design they are a little loose. Once the heatsink and bolts are on, the tension pulls the brackets upward.

Heatsink bolted down.

Mounted with our reference Nexus fan.
