Street Price: $62.99 USD

Last time we reviewed a cooler by Tuniq, we were thoroughly impressed by not only the performance, but the sheer quality and attention to detail that the company has put into their design. It is to no surprise that it was deservedly awarded top marks and claimed back its cooling crown for a brief while. Not to be caught idling, Tuniq have developed the Propeller 120, which is a top-down based cooler targeted at HTPC users and those with m-atx setups. This pits it against the previously reviewed Noctua NH-C12P SE14, which proved to be terrific even under great stress so the Tuniq faces stiff competition today.

The cooler, as with the Noctua NH-C12P SE14, is a top down cooler with many of Tuniq's unique features which we will cover later on. The heat sink utilizes a high RPM fan to dispel as much heat as possible while its 8mm thick heat pipes aim to overcome its size limitation to transfer as much heat as possible from the CPU. If the Tower 120 Extreme is anything to go by, this product looks very promising and should hopefully differentiate Tuniq from other manufacturers.

A few words from Tuniq:

We at Tuniq aim to provide authentic performance through a minimalist approach by stripping down the unnecessary components in product designs.
