Thermalright Is Going to Present the TRUE Spirit Direct Cooler
In the nearest time, Thermalright is going to present TRUE Spirit Direct, which is a cooling device of an average efficiency. This construction weighs around g and is mm long, 67 mm wide and mm high. It will apparently cost less than TRUE Spirit Direct models (going for approximately $47).
The heatsink of TRUE Spirit Direct consists of an aluminium pressure plate, four U-shaped copper nickelized 6 mm heat pipes and tens of perforated aluminium plates. The mm fan is attached to the radiator by standard wire spikes. The rotary speed of this unit is unknown yet, however, taking into account another mm fan cooler (TRUE Spirit M BW Rev.A), we may assume it will not exceed 1, rpm.
It is remarkable that in the lower part the fan is located almost at the base level. Such a strange design may prove its worth in systems, including motherboards with massive, but ineffective VRM heatsinks.
