Spire CoolGate 2012 CPU cooler revealed

Posted on Thursday, November 15 2012 @ 13:42:37 CET by

Spire debuts the CoolGate 2012 (X2.9883 - SP988N1-V3-PWM), a new processor cooler with six 6mm diameter sinter-powder direct-touch copper heatpipes, an array with 46 aluminium fins and a 120mm Nano-Tech bearing PWM fan that delivers up to 74.63CFM at a noise level of 22dBA. The heatsink measures 140mm x 47mm x 160mm and weighs 730g. It's capable of handling a heat output of up to 150W and supports Intel LgA775/1155/1156/1366/2011 and AMD Socket AM2/AM3/940/939 processors.

The MSRP is $64.95 (48.999EUR).
CoolGate 2012 is the next evolution of the hugely successful TherMax and Gemini CPU cooler Series. The increased number of heat-pipes combined with a higher number and density of dimpled fins and crowned with one high airflow, yet silent and PWM controlled fans for great cooling performance. Six (6) U-shaped 6mm heat-pipes are in Direct contact (HDT) with the CPU heat source. Swift heat transfer to the 46 aluminum dimpled fins providing a larger surface area for optimum heat dissipation. The CoolGate 2012 is supplied with one 12cm balanced, Nano-Tech bearing fans providing high airflow and adequate cooling. This fan is PWM controlled to provide the lowest noise v.s. cooling ratio possible. Compatibility is guaranteed with multi-platform mounting for all current Intel (incl. Socket 2011) and all popular AMD micro-processors. The CoolGate 2012 is pure cooling power that takes performance to the next level. Spire – Powered by Innovation.

Main Features:
* Six (6) 6mm all copper U-shaped sinter-powder heat-pipes
