This cooler's performance, is gonna be on the level of a macho rev.b, Mugen 5 (with fast fan).

Wow, I take a few minute for lunch before finishing my post and you guys beat me to most of what I was saying.

But 212 has nothing to do with this or Thermalright previous 4x 8mm heatpipe coolers.
8mm heatpipe TDP rating is 25-30% higher than same length 6mm heatpipe. I don't know why more are not used in CPU coolers. It's not like they are new to heatpipe coolers as they were used very early on by Thermalright and proved their cooling ability very well.

Jeeeez man! Not you too!..... I'm not comparing the 4 heatpipes against 4 heatpipes. That's why I'm comparing the frost (4x8), with macho rev.b (6x6) and Mugen 5 6x6 (with a fast fan).

I'm using it as an analogy.

Sorry mate, but how is it an analogy? Why did you mention 212 in this thread at all? It's nothing like Frost Spirit in any way, shape or form.
While we may not agree, I stlll think you are okay.
Edit: Just noticed the finpacks are offset to one side like Silver Arrow IB-E and D-15S, etc. for better PCIe clearance on small motherboards. The more I see the more I like!

Base looks like the older, thicker premium cooler bases were (Cogage Arrow, Silver Arrow, Archon, etc.)

This is a great looking cooler. Are they making a "high end" one as well ?

What do you mean by 'high end' one?

if i had to take a guess i think he would mean 5-6 heatpipe version (basically a true spirit power)

i would love if thermalright just took the true spirit power and made it have a max 165mm height. really hard finding affordable cases with good airflow that can accommodate the 171mm height

There are all kinds of cases that have 171+mm CPU clearance .. like most Phanteks and Fractal Design cases. Many of them are sub-$100 too.

Honestly, if you have a small cpu chances are only 4 pipes on TS140P are covering the die anyways. This cooler will do alright I think.
