The Ultra-X active CPU cooler from Enzotech places right near the top with the best CPU coolers on the market today. It delivers excellent performance, offers a broad operating range, and looks great. The speed of the included 120mm fan can be adjusted to provide the right balance of cooling performance and noise. And thanks to its down-draft design, the Ultra-X will also cool surrounding components in the CPU socket area of the motherboard. However, due to its large size, the Ultra-X may not be compatible with all motherboards.
The Enzotech Ultra-X active CPU cooler has an MSRP of $65.00 USD. They are currently hard to find but I have seen them selling online for $59.95.
