    Just found this cooler and remember the days when tuniq ruled the HSF world, now is this one comparable to TRUE and Mega?

    It looks great too

    review in link above thanks to pantherx12

    Noctua NH-U12P (NF-P12 fan) Idle 25 Load 45
    CM V8 (Stock fan) Idle 25 Load 46
    CM V10 (Stock fan) Idle 24 Load 39
    Tuniq Extreme 120 (Stock fan min rpm) Idle 24 Load 40
    Tuniq Extreme 120 (Stock fan medium rpm) Idle 24 Load 36
    Tuniq Extreme 120 (Stock fan max rpm) Idle 23.5 Load 34

    This is from the xtreme forum topic below, im thinking holy shit, i want to see it compared to a Mega with a 2K fan ASAP!

    I don't think anybody knows yet unless there are reviews out already.

    Edit: It looks like a massive HDT cooler.

    Tuniq has always been a competitor in my book. They had some great early quality equipment, but the one you mentioned looks great. I'd venture to say this is on par with the Coolermaster V8 or Hyper600.

    But the V8 lags behind quite a bit from TRUE

    i just got my unit yesterday, i haven't open it for photoshoot. :D

    i just hope it'll work with my i5 setup (if not, back to LGA775 unit).......... gonna install them once i collect the hard disk and motherboard today, I'll probably start to setup the rig Friday or weekend.

    Kain XS on XtremeSystems is working on a review, but from what he's leaked so far it beats the V10 by a few degrees.

    Here it is!

    Well i´ve got ahead and purchased a Megashadow, though i dont like the Tuniq barely matching the zalman, that cooler isnt that great.

    I'm going to wait for frostytech to review it.

    Or TPU obviously.

    nearly bought it a minute ago but then decided I should measure my case first ha ha

    got it set up so far lowest idle is 33 highest load is 53 with my amd 965 i could only get to 3.9ghz i could post to 4.0ghz but when i try prime 95 it blue screens at 42.c:cry: but so far im really happy with this cooler i think i could get the temps down alot more if i get a bigger fan that could move more air even at max you could barely hear the fan and if your using a amd motherboard i could only use 2 of my corsair dominator in slot 3&4 on my croshair lll it covers my first 2 ram slots if your running low profile you might be ok with 4 but dont quote me on that i dont have low profile ram to try
