In this review, we take a look at a CPU cooler from Thermalright. Thermalright is often associated with high end coolers. However, in this review we’re not having a look at one of their top coolers, but instead a smaller version, which is aimed at the people who needs a good and quiet cooler without having over 500 grams of metal screwed to the motherboard. The cooler we’re reviewing is the Thermalright Ultima-90l.
Thermalright Ultima-90l is, like all other Thermalright products, delivered in a very neutral package, which only has the model number printed on the box.
Thermalright keeps their usual style, when talking about the product and accessories.
Beside the Thermalright Ultima-90l cooler, the following is bundled in the box:
• Mounting material (socket 775 and AM2)
• Fan support for 92mm and 120mm fans
• Cooling paste
• Install manual
As with all other Thermalright products, no fan is included. All in all it’s a fine bundle, but we miss a fan.
Moving on, we have a look at the specifications for the Thermalright Ultima-90l cooler. As mentioned in the introduction, the Thermalright Ultima-90l cooler is a smaller version of the Thermalright Ultra120 Extreme, which is a high end cooler. The specifications for the Thermalright Ultima-90l cooler are as follows:
• Bottom material: Cobber (nickel treated)
• Top material: Aluminium Fins, 48 pcs.
• Heatpipes: 6 stk.
• Dimensions: L115 x W55 x H139
• Both 92mm and 120mm fan support
• Weight: 460 grams
Thermalright Ultima-90l supports both socket 775 and AMD, and its possible to buy optional mounts for socket 754 and 939 from AMD.
Things worth noticing about the Thermalright Ultima-90l cooler, is the relatively low weight, and the dimensions of the cooler, which means you won’t have any space problems. Last but not least, Thermalright has fitted 6 heatpipes, and because they’re placed like a “U” it should perform like 12 heatpipes.
