Thermalright Frost Spirit

As "leaked" from ChipHell, purportedly soon(TM):
(though given the existence of an actual retail packaging, probable; they're usually designed and cut last)

Will be interesting to see it tested, assuming anyone capable picks it up.. Best case scenario, Gamers Nexus or Hardware Unboxed will, and they're both useless. Or if we're really lucky, maybe JayzzzztwoCentz(!11) will, he has that revolutionary method of fan testing; you know, the one without any numbers, just a hankerchief (EK Vardar fans, video's still up; he even goes on to proclaim them the best ever! Talk about dedication to science). Amazing stuff.
Either way, while the fin arrangement's a nice idea, they're still too spread apart for my liking, though i grant that the majority of users will benefit from that design as they aim for sub-1500 revolutions. Just.. not the way to get that Performance Crown, now is it.
My cynical self also has a thing or two to say about the different fan casings, but.. there'll be time enough for that

(Noctua needs to get their stuff in gear pronto; first the new Assassin, now this. That new NHD15 is about two years late; i honestly wonder if they got too big for their own good, goes together with slow, or if they're having production issues; volume coming to mind mostly)

Pride, honour and purity.

RGB fans from Thermalright. Didn't see that one coming.

Very interested to see how it performs.

Perhaps we'll also see xtreme versions?

Wouldn't mind
But honestly? I mostly wish they revised their mounting mechanism; it's not exactly the easiest to work with, to put it kindly.

The rgb fans may a letdown for the few remaining normal people on this planet, but.. makes sense for TR given the audience; it's what it is.
(i've stocked up on TY143s like you wouldn't believe.. got me a vaccuum sealer and have each fan individually packaged, lol. Sooner or later, they too will join the rainbow parade, inevitable. Man has to be prepared!)

Pride, honour and purity.

TY143s are one of a kind, Only wished they were black & white like TY147s.
Like you mentioned in your OP, the fin design seems to favour low speed fans, high speed fans may not be very effective.

Every Dual tower cooler have somewhat ripped off nhd14's mounting mechanism & it seems like TR have done it too. Mounting should be quite hassle free.

And yeah, when I see the Nh D16 with aRGB fans, I wouldn't be surprised.

1. It's unimpressive. Even at 8mm, 4 heatpipes it's not gonna compete at the top end.

2. I don't like dual tower coolers as they focus raw power rather than eficiency. And 99% users don't use coolers at max fan speed.

3. It's probably not gonna be available in the west,...... and by west, i mean Europe/US.

4. I agree about NOCTUA to some extent, but as long as media picture the NH d15 as the undisputed king, there's not much to do.

Media has a really strong impact in people's minds. I've seen video reviews, very often, where the issue was shown on the screen, while the reviewer giving props to the product. Nobody would react to the issue. It's completely incredible.

LOL....the state of component reviews is so sad. Information makes no difference, just be a talking head that is relatable to people who spend fifteen hours a day alone playing video games. And for your info, Jay has renamed his channel to JayzzzEKShillzzzzz (cuz they give me all my gearzzzzzz).

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Yes.. worse still, most are either unable to acknowledge this, on a technical field for crying out loud, or simply don't care i guess?
Extra tragedy cookies given that the above stands today. The 'Era of Information'. Free information at that, is it not?

To the user (edit: it's Shenhua, apologies) before the beloved Charlatan, criticising the heat pipes, heat pipes aren't everything. Proven time and time again; they are a significant contributing factor, but far from a sole indicator. Patience
I agree about media and appearances of course; which is why i'm perplexed with Noctua's delay, perception is king and they know it. This goes beyond their NH-D15 mind you. They went through all the trouble to design a proper Threadripper cooler, also announced over a year ago, functional samples at expeditions and everything, launch to coincide with the 3960Xs/70Xs. And? Where is it?
