ThermalTake introduced the SpinQ VT, a new spiral cooler for the Intel LGA775/1156/1366 and AMD Socket 754/939/AM2/AM2+/AM3 processors. The ThermalTake SpinQ VT has a copper and aluminum base, three 6mm heatpipes, 50 aluminum fins and a cylinder-like 80mm fan .
It will soon be available for about $49.
The SpinQ VT combines cooling strength with an enticingly aesthetic appearance. Three u-shaped 6 mm heatpipes connect the mirror coated copper base with the cylindrical heat sink which is created of 50 spiral aluminum fins. Inside the heat sink spiral a specially designed 80 mm blow fan rotates with 1000 to 1600 RPM to exhaust the heat over 360 degrees. Manual control over the fan speed is provided for by the convenient VR® Fan knob allowing for stepless speed adjustment. All of this results in excellent cooling characteristics taking up to 180W/mm2 of heat dissipation.
The internal 80 mm fan adds to the futuristic design concept with its fierce red LED lighting effect glowing inside the cylinder while also diffusely beaming over the aluminum fins into the case.
