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.

Quote: 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.

Very impressive!
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.



Best seller in UK is Alternate for £43.99, and shipping of £9.90. So if you need anything else check their prices as the £9.90 is for up to 40kg.

Very impressive results, the performance is on par with these big dual towers. The price is also very attractive.

I might finally have found a replacement for my good old HR02

2nd fan should be around 3-4c better performance. which means it will pass the noctua

with less than 2c delta I think I would just take the reduced noise of only needing a single fan. plus this cooler is $54 on Amazon No need to speed $80 on air cooler amymore

The width of the cooler could be a problem, it can block the top PCI-e slot which can be a problem with 2011 or any socket closer to the expansion slots

The original TS140 already was the best "budget high end" cooler in my book, especially if you are searching for a quiet solution, so the TS140 Power seems to be even slightly better.

It's not for all applications but for many it will be great for cases and motherboards it will fit.

Difference on 6mm pipe version between one and two TY-140 fans is 1.5c, but using Gentle Typhoon AP-3 it is 6c cooler. If we get similar results with 8mm pipes the True Spirit 140 Power will be an even better value.

Define R4 specs 170mm CPU clearance but that's probably conservative. My R2 spec is "circa 165mm and TC14PE fits no problem. Worst case the tip0s of pipes will rub on sound mat on inside of side cover.

Found this Amazon.de review of TS140 in Define R4
Quote:
This review is from: Thermalright True Spirit 140 CPU Cooler for Socket 775/1155/1366/AM2/AM3/FM1 (accessory)
It has already been written here as well as everything about the product. Here are my comments about the device: The cooler has a very good cooling performance (my AMD Phenom II X4 3.4 it cools in the IDLE down to room temperature (28 ° C) sub-let the temperature rises no higher than 37 ° C. My housing. : Fractal Design Define R4) The installation is easy, until you get to the fan. This secure it with the supplied brackets to the cooling block is a true torment I would recommend this to fasten only on both sides of the upper hooks of the brackets, then the bottom. If an attempt is only on one side of the bracket completely secure, slip the whole thing and you quickly lose the nerves.

Furthermore: The imaginary for decoupling, enclosed rubber pads between the cooling block and the fan are subsequently not where the fans really rests, head to your in the instruction sheet. I've completely removed, trimmed and repositioned (left and right, at the edge of the cooling block). The fan itself may be on the rotor blades poorly deburred was the case at least for me, I have also processed again with a file.

Overall, the fan most of the time PWM Controlled running with me at about 550 RPM. Thus it is not audible to me. For the price a good acquisition.

Edit December 2013: Have now an AMD FX 8350 Octa-Core processor running under this cooler. With Arctic Cooling MX2 thermal paste even this does not get hotter than 50 ° C, with three case fans (2x 120mm 1x140mm) in the unchanged Case (fractal R4) provide for passage.
You will need 70mm clearance from center of CPU to PCI-E socket, but that shouldn't be a problem.

I always do a "practice" mounting before applying TIM just to familiarize myself with any potential problems. Only takes a couple minutes and alleviates the potential for poor TIM seat.

A good magnetic tip on screwdriver eases the installation of mounting screws.

Mounting fans is a PITA. Practice mounting them a few times before install and be sure to install fan clips on cooler before installing cooler.

Antec formula 7 is as good(if not better) as the IC7,other tims are gelid gc extreme or xigmatek freezing point

I've heard both good and bad about IC Diamond.

TRUE Spirit 140 Power comes with Chill Factor III.

I bought several tubes of Thermalright's Chill Factor III so will be using them for awhile. As it's want I've been using for testing It's hard to change.

Before that it was Phanteks PH-NDC and Arctic MX-4.

If I was starting fresh it would be a hard choice.. GELID's GC-Extreme or Prolimatech's PK-3. Both are easy to use and give very good results.

There are several very good thermal pastes out there. All within a degree or two.

Gelid. I love it. It has no cure time and the tube you get for $12 is good for like 20+ applications.

Was doing some calculations for heat pipe area and fin contact area.
TRUE Spirit 140 Power has 6x 8mm pipes compared to normal TRUE Spirit 140 having 6x 6mm pipes.
That is 33% more heat pipe surface area contacting each fin.
TS140 has 50 fins and TS140P has 46.
That is 8% less fins.
8% less fins gives us 29% more heat pipe to fin contact area transmitting heat from pipes to fins and into air.

Thanks.

I was wondering how efficiently the heat pipe to surface area translates to the CPU temperature decrease. Is there any formula about this in general, not specifically related to the TS140P?

Does it also depends a lot on the architecture of the rad (single/dual tower, fins airflow orientation, flat base, etc..)?

I see it as a Logit curve. I guess there is a point where the increase of surface area does not provide any decrease in temps.



(where Y=CPU temp and X=heat pipe to surface area).

What do you think?
