Introduction to the SpinQ VT

You can count on Thermaltake to come up with coolers very different from what you are used to seeing. It all started with the Big Typhoon back in the day and continued with newer coolers like the V1 and SpinQ. Some of these coolers have been big hits and some have not. However, this does not keep them from bringing to market new and exciting ideals.

That's right. We're taking a look at a new cooler, which is showing as much promise as the above coolers. This is the new version of the SpinQ, dubbed the SpinQ VT. The VT fins are not hanging at the end of the heat-pipes at a 90 degree angle, but stands tall and straight. The SpinQ is topped off by a red glow and it makes everything bright and vibrant. Lets take a look at this new cooler.

A word from Thermaltake about the SpinQ VT

Thermaltake, leading DIY thermal solutions brand, launches the next generation of the award-winning SpinQ processor cooler, the Thermaltake SpinQ VT. With its multi-socket support the SpinQ VT offers excellent compatibility for upcoming Intel LGA 1156, LGA 1366 and older LGA 775 processors, while AMD AM3, AM2+ and AM2 CPUs are supported.

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.
