Ultra Chilltec TEC CPU Cooler Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
While thermoelectric coolers were fairly popular among enthusiasts in the late 1990s, they have largely been replaced by superior cooling solutions, such as phase-change units. Nevertheless, some companies are trying to bring back the venerable peltier. Benchmark Reviews has just posted a review Ultra Chilltec TEC CPU Cooler.
Lets see what they had to say:
The ChillTec proved that thermo electric cooling works; if for only low level temperatures. The loaded results were not disappointing, but they were very far from being impressive, and even farther from being acceptable from a product like this. If Chevy built a Corvette that couldn't beat a Toyota Camry off the line, you can bet that the experts would bury it. To that same extent, there's no chance of me recommending the Ultra ULT33186 ChillTec to anyone except the most free-spending hardware enthusiast and overclocker. Ultra makes great products, and the ChillTec isn't bad, but the price is nowhere near matching the performance.
While this CPU cooler performs pretty well, it is undermined by its price. For $140, you want something that will blow all other products out of the water, and this does not do so. If you want the best air cooler, go look at products from Coolink, Enzotech, Scythe, and Thermalright.
