Which fans did you mount on the cooler? 1 or 2? Or do you use it as a passive solution?
With a propper fan (or better two fans) mounted, decent air-flow inside the case and with a good thermal compound (thermal grease/paste) the Ultra 120 should be more than sufficient...

Yea, that should do the trick, but I would add another 120mm fan to it.

I would suggest getting some Cougar vortex fans, They are making All the difference to me now, and they are Dead silent, you can hear your ALC over them, but they push so much air!
