The Thermalright TRUE Spirit 140 Power Universal CPU Cooler is an tower style heatsink with a copper base and 6x 8mm heat pipes compared to other True Spirit 140s' with 6x 6mm heat pipes. The large heatsink fin array, provides dissipating area of up to 150*125mm, and makes complete use of the airflow, with 140mm or 120mm fan. This cooler supports multiple platforms making it a wise choice for those that may be changing hardware. The Thermalright TY-140 fan is included and is PWM enabled with a max RPM of 1300 with 73.6 CFM.

The True Spirit 140 "Power" is without a doubt the top model of the Thermalright "Value" series.
True to their motto “innovated – not imitated” Thermalright not only visually revised the heat sink for the recent version. The “Power” now comes with six 8 mm thick heatpipes (previously 6 mm). Thus, the performance of the True Spirit 140 could be further improved.
This means that the flagship of the True Spirit series still does not need to fear comparison with considerably more expensive models. If you want maximum performance at an affordable price and your case has the necessary width, the True Spirit 140 "Power" is certainly your best choice.
The copper heatpipes now are nickel-plated and offer in combination with the black anodized top-fin a very elegant appearance, probably unique in a cooler in this price range. With the revised design, the new Thermalright Series for 2014 combines for the first time the high-quality optics of the high-priced high-end coolers with the award-winning, outstanding value-for-money of the proven "value" models.
The large heatsink is optimized for 140 mm fans. The narrow design of the cooler makes incompatibilities of the fans with adjacent memory banks avoidable in most cases. The heat sink is equipped with six 6 mm thick, high-quality heat pipes, which are optimally positioned to effectively dissipate the heat generated by the CPU to the 50 aluminum fins. The copper contact surface of the cooler is nickel-plated and highly polished.
The special partly angled fin design serves to minimize the air resistance and at the same time effectively contributes to a considerable reduction of the system temperature. The distance between the aluminum fins was chosen so that the cooler provides a well above-average performance, even at lowest fan speed. Of course, the most powerful cooler of the Thermalright “Value” series knows how to impress with its high quality processing.
A temperature-controlled TY-147 PWM-fan is included with the cooler. The rotation speed varies – depending on the CPU-temperature – between 900 – 1,300 rpm (+/- 15%), resulting in an air flow capacity of about 96 – 125 m³/h. Owing to its sophisticated design, the inner diameter of the fan is even slightly greater than that of a conventional 140 mm fan (!). This mean that even at low speed and correspondingly lower noise, the capacity is higher than the performance of most conventional 120 mm axial fans. For a sufficiently silent operation, the model uses seven blades in a special "torpedo" design. Together with the optimized wings and streamlined frame design, this causes a particularly effective and at the same time also very quiet air flow.
Corresponding to the claim of being the most powerful model of the series, a total of four specially designed fan clips are included. This allows the installation of a second fan, if desired. The fans can be anti-vibration mounted with the enclosed AntiVibe-Pads (8 pcs included). By dispensing the backplate assembly was further simplified.
A universal mounting kit is included, which supports all actual Intel- and AMD sockets (Intel LGA775/1366/1156/1155/2011/1150 and AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/FM1/FM2). The installation is simple and self-explanatory - an illustrated manual is included.

First review is out. 1.3c warmer than NH-D14 2011SE with single fan on [email protected]
Wonder how it will do with 2 fans.. or 2 TY-143 fans?
6x 8mm heatpipes give it as much or more heatpipe area as the best have, but obviously not as much fin area. Everything is plated and black top too.
