Thermaltake SpinQ

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. Installation was very easy since it uses the same method as the stock heatsinks do, and although performance was not the best, it still was decent and allowed a respectable overclock.
  • 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

Thermaltake SpinQ

  • Summary: It’s got looks, a fairly standard formfactor (as opposed to the DuOrb’s expanse), and ease of installation in its favor, and its performance is nothing to scoff at. But in a fair fight, at 100 percent CPU utilization, it can’t match up with its sibling. Both coolers retail for $80, so unless you’re really cramped for horizontal space, you’re better off with the DuOrb.
  • Pros: Good looks, easy to mount, respectable cooling power.
  • Cons: Same price as the DuOrb, without the performance.
