With compatibility for most modern sockets, the SpinQ supports the hottest processors out there, but LGA 1366 support is absent. Perhaps a solution for this newest Intel socket is in the offing. The dimensions are impressive and six copper 6mm heatpipes coupled with 50 aluminum fins should provide some good cooling performance.


The real star of the show here is the fan, which dictates the rest of the design. Using a centrifugal fan allows the airflow to radiate from the center outwards over 360 degrees. We'll go over the design in more detail later, but be aware that this is a vastly different cooler than you've probably seen in the past.



Thermaltake touts the appearance of the SpinQ as it's most prominent feature, but the fan, heatpipes, fins and base will provide the cooling performance. Let's take a closer look at the SpinQ, get it installed and see if it cools as good as it looks.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION



For around $60 US, Thermaltake delivers the SpinQ in an attractive carton with a window through which you can view a small portion of the cooler. Inside…



…there's a small cardboard box with all the accessories and documentation and, of course, the SpinQ cooler. It's definitely got an unusual look going for it. Let's check it out in more detail.
