What's your idle and load temperatures with the ThermalRight Ultra-120 Extreme, b1gapl?

so the TR Ultra-120 Extreme is better than the Tuniq Tower?

What possible speed can I see safely with the AF7? Thanks guys

That's great b1gapl! Stock speed is what you can only get with the AF7. Sorry to say, but it's true.

The TR Ultra-120 Extreme is probably the best air cooler. Or maybe the second best. I've read the Enzotech Ultra-X beats it a little, with a little more noise. With the AF7 Pro, maybe 2.8GHz-3.0GHz.

Enzotech Ultra-X Heatsink Review

Source.

I don't get how it could be slightly better then the TR-120 Extreme. What's the black thing anyways?

Can you explain why you think the TR Ultra-120 Extreme is better than the Tuniq Tower? I want to get it right this time lol

It's better because it has more heatpipes, I think. But most people go for the Tuniq since it's cheaper, and already has a fan included, in which the Ultra-120 Extreme does not.

It has 12 copper pipes which moves heat around the metal plates while the Tuniq Tower 120 has 6 copper pipes running along both sides. Also you can have an option to add two 120mm or 140mm attached to both sides of the TR-120 Extreme which will blow out the heat.
