Summary: But its great looks don’t translate into great performance, and it requires more than six inches of vertical clearance. Plus, its fan orientation might play havoc with your case’s airflow, especially if you don’t have an intake fan or vent in your side panel. For $60, you can get a much better air cooler—or even two.
Pros: Cool design; easy install; variable fan.
Cons: No 4-pin connector; middling performance; fan control inside case.
Summary: Thermaltake's SpinQ VT heatsink is undeniably unique, it's sculptural and nothing about its helical fin arrangement is unnecessarily complex. The SpinQ VT heatsink stands 162mm tall and is made from nickel plated aluminum fins soldered over six copper heatpipes, which are really three heatpipes doubled over into a U-shape.
