    Default availability of Tuniq Tower 120 in Belgium?

    Kwak or any other who are in the know, would you happen to know an e-store or shop around Belgium that sells it?
    I can find the Thermalright SI-120 or the Scythe Infinity, but no sign of Tuniq, I'm tried google sure, still do
    I think I'll go with the Infinity, but maybe if the Tuniq isn't overpriced here I might reconsider

    Default I have no idea of why you chose to post in this forum, but OK I guess. :-)

    An offering from your fellow Countryman http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=getarticle&articID=389

    I will admit to being partial to the products that ThermalRight offers. Consider what jmke offers here http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=get...77&articID=496
    The Ultra 120 sure looks good in the mad shrimp's testing.

    Thanks for the links Galvanized
    I read the Anandtech review this morning actually ^^
    I do like the bent fins of the SI-120, but unfortunately it costs the same as the Infinity here (both 50euros) yet the Infinity comes with the Scythe S-Flex SFF21D (1200rpm rated 49CFM), the SI-120 would mean i add 14euros o buy the S-Flex.
    For me all 3 contenders are equal, their all over the top, and frankly 1 degree delta between them isn't of a big concern for me. Either way, the one I'll buy will still go through lapping + pressure mounting.

    Now this doesn't mean I betraying my Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro no it's a perfect cheap cooler for running stock or with minor overclocking, but sometimes at load with a 401x9 MHz it's a little loud for me.

    EDIT: thx for reminding me Jmke is here, I'm gonna harass him for good deals around here X-D

    Ok Bytes@work it's gonna be. (same shipping =9euros)

    now impending dilemma:

    Scythe Infinity = 42eur
    vs
    Tuniq 120 Tower = 44eur

    For sake of clarity: my setup: Asus P5B-Deluxe, currently with stock heatsinks+pipe, maybe replacing the Northbridge with Thermalright HR-5.
    so no clearance issues I think with mobo so far. Case P180, OK for that department too.
    this pc runs at 401 FSB, mutli=9, so 3.6 GHz.
    currently my bios settings are: Vcore: 1.4v (drops to 1.33v)
    FSB Termination Voltage: 1.200v
    NB Vcore: 1.45v
    SB Vcore: 1.50v
    ICH: 1.057v

    temps with TAT: 38 Idle, 58 Load
    temps while playing Supreme Commander 47
    (in degrees celsius)

    Additional query: which one of the 2 following TIMs?
    Zalman ZM-STG1 Thermal Grease
    or Artic Silver 5
    I never personnaly used any aftermarket TIM (used the one pre-applied on my AC Freezer 7 Pro), I hear the Artic Silver 5 is the most popular, with the Ceramique too. I'll make review searches but still interested in your opinions.
    From a trivial point of view, I think I'd get more usage with the syringe 3.5gram than with the flask-shaped Zalman (hard to reach upper corners).

    I prefer the Infinity; it's within a few degrees of the Tuniq, it's more flexable in mounting and cooling configs, it's more optimized for silence, and it's also got a shiny box. That's what sold it for me.

    Infinity and AS5. But ZM-STG1 is a good TIM also.

    I don't know if its any easier for you to get, but the Noctuas from Austria are pretty popular.

    The girl in the picture is easy on the eyes too.

    can't recall where but I think I can get it yeah,
    all I know is that 120mm Noctua's are damn expensive at 19euros

    edit: nevermind, I found it --> at LDLC.com for 55euros. I know it's the most silent fan, I'm gonna see how the HSF fares in the temps department.

    Side Note: AS5 no longer on my wish list. ---> Shin-Etsu X23, now I think I'm gonna mail directy Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. because I can't find any in Belgium. Some store did sell some in 2003 but not anymore (although I'm still waiting for a reply from them).
    4 degrees delta between AS5 and Shin-Etsu. wow.
    Tom'shardware => DaClan-Review-Thermal-Interface-Shootout

    I think Jonny uses some

    If I were not to find any, would a benevolent soul in the UK be willing to receive all the necessary money, to ship me a syringe, my friend Conroe needs a fix badly

    UPDATE: I found someone that sells/ships ShinEtsu over here, and also Liquid Pro in a store in Belgium, same store will stock up on the 2 new Thermalright products when they start flooding the market. everything's great %)
