Tuniq Tower Extreme 120 looks as good as it should cool
 
The iconic Tuniq Tower 120 was one of the best performing air coolers of its generation. However recently Heat pipe Direct Touch or HDT coolers along with newer coolers such as the Prolimatech Megahalems and Cooler Master V8 have left it trailing.
 
 
Tuniq have rectified this with their new Tuniq Tower 120 which has been sighted around the net. The flame shape stays but the cooler has been upgraded to a 5 heat pipe HDT layout, which should equal great performance. The cooler looks fantastic as I'm sure you will agree and looks to offer performance for those who take a keen interest in their system's aesthetics.
 
 
Tower 120 Extreme measures 131×112.31×150.7mm, weighs 775g (excluding fan), and features five U-shaped heat pipes. The included 120mm MFDB (Magnetic Fluid Dynamic Bearing) fan delivers airflow of 90.65CFM and operates at 1000-2000RPM, with a sound output of 16-20+/-10%dBA. The unique wave-like fins can increase the air-contact area for outstanding thermal performance. Bundled with high-quality TX-3 thermal compound, Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme supports LGA1366/775 and AM2/AM3 processors.
 
 
5 HDT heat pipes and an attractive appearance, will this cooler rock the boat or be just another pretty face?

Buy a motherboard with a nvidia chipset so that way you can go sli. But for core i7 the x58 chipset support both crossfire and sli

So would i get any major performance out of a phenom ii(oc'ed) rig with a 4890 compared to an 8800 sli phenom?

a 4890 would be your better choice mate as you could add another later, which would destroy the two 8800's

So Should I just go for 2 4890's instead of a whole new rig? (Thinking of cheaper options :) )

Thinking this because ive got the 790fx chipset which is still pretty good.

yeah id go with the 2 4890's which would dominate, and then wait for some cashflow and save for a PH2 955 or something

Cheers 4 that m8. Made me a bit happier knowing i won't be splashing so much cash out :)

Think wen i get the 955 it would make a major performance boost if i went to AM3,DDR3?

Try testing how much fps gain would you get for 2 4890.

best thing too do is get the 4890's in and see what fps you get, then get the phenom II and put that in and see if you get a speed up which most likely you will, then if you get a nice bit of money in the future you can make the step too ddr3 and AM3 mobo at the minute theres hardly any difference in games with ddr2 vs ddr3
