looks oh so shiny. What do you need it for? major overclocking or just cooling down your cpu

That's an insane heatsink. Must be really expensive, and freakin' heavy too. I'd just be happy with the Ultra-120 extreme.

Both really.

It's only $15 or so more expensive than the Ultra 120 Xtreme, so I'm considering buying.

No tempreture tests seem to exist for it yet.

What's up with the back plate part? How does that work?

I assume that it fixes onto the main heatsink itself... I'm not really sure though, there isn't any additional information I can find than what's already on Thermalright.com.

The back part is for additional cooling, for the heat coming from the back of the motherboard.

Enthusiast - Thermalright Inferno FX-14 CPU Cooler Preview

Finally found a review, though I'd really like to see the IFX-14's performance in comparison to the Ultra-120 eXtreme.

It should be better, because it's a much bigger heatsink. Alot more surface for the heat to spread out.
