[EXP] Thermaltake SpinQ VT CPU Cooler Preview  

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

Quote:
Following success of the award-winning SpinQ CPU cooler, Thermaltake has introduced the new SpinQ VT, which was first seen at ComputeX Taipei 2009.

The cooler is very similar to the former SpinQ in terms of features, except for that the aluminum fins propagate perpendiculr to the plane of the motherboard, while the fan blows air onto the motherboard. The three 6mm U-shaped heatpipes are equally efficient to the six ones on SpinQ.

With a diameter of 120mm and height of 159mm, the cooler weighs 400g (excluding the brackets).

I'd like to see some benchmarks first.

yeah, it's just a preview. No real review it seems

also push-pin mounting = fail

While I doubt it will cool exceptionally well, ya have to admit it is an "eye-catching" HSF.

looks nice ... I see this at the same level with a Zalman CNPS9500 or maybe a degree better

If when installing a Zalman you did not cut your self try installing one of these.

I am going to make a CPU cooler with razor blades and thornes. Because if a cooler that tends to cut their installers sells then sign me up

It is a very sexy looking cooler but I doubt it perfroms.

Turbine-style fan is a deal killer, as are the push-pins. This is just a pretty gimmick.

Urgh... turbine fans never give good enough airflow for the amount of noise they create. I remember having an old Coolermaster heatsink with a turbine style fan on the top of it... to get half decent cooling performance out of it, you needed to have the fan on 'deafen the person in the next room over' levels...

And pushpins? That is something I wish Intel had never come up with.

That cooler is as silly as a huge spoiler on a ricer.

Bling, bright LED lights, unique fin designs, exotic metal plating and loud, high CFM fans. What do all these things have in common? They are common features that attract the masses into buying a certain cooler over another, purely based on looks alone.
