Default Suggestion

According to this graph here



The Ultra 120 Extremem performs better than the tuniq tower, and the ultima 90 is on par, so why does everyone suggest tuniq tower?

...because it already has a fan included, and is not expensive, compared to the TR Ultra-120 Extreme, which doesn't have a fan included.

Yes...as good as the TR Ultra-120 Extreme is, it's not recommended to cool passively. Especially with the CPU.

No one's forcing you to buy a fan; just that if you don't, your CPU will melt.

so the only one that beats the TR 120-E is a thermal electric?
Newegg.com - VIGOR GAMING CLT-M2I 92mm Thermal Electric CPU Cooler - Retail

If that's according to newegg, then no. It' much cheaper at svc.com, or petrastechshop.com.
