Thermaltake SpinQ

techPowerUp!
16 March 2010
  • Summary: The Thermaltake SpinQ is a very unique design for a CPU heatsink. The spiral fins and squirrel-cage fan provide some extra airflow around the CPU socket, but not as much as a downward-facing heatsink.
  • Pros: Unique design, Good compatibility, Decent performance, Extra airflow around the CPU socket, Easy installation
  • Cons: Low mounting pressure, Non-standard fan can only be replaced by same fan, Noisy at full speed, High price tag

  • Conclusion: The Thermaltake SpinQ certainly has a stylish look about it and adds a little bling to the inside of your chassis and provided a little overclocking headroom. We managed to get to 3.2GHz on the Q6600 and stay under 70°C, which is our cutoff for CPU cooler testing in most cases.

Thermaltake SpinQ heatsink review

Icrontic
11 April 2009
  • Conclusion: One area we are unable to objectively evaluate is noise, as we lack the equipment to accurately measure the decibels produced by a heatsink. In the case of the SpinQ, we’d probably be out of luck even if we did have equipment: It wouldn’t be loud enough to register on most dB meters.
  • Pros: Very good performance., Quiet adjustable fan., Great accessories., Stylish design.
  • Cons: Less expensive units will outperform it., Fan rheostat wire is short.
