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
Summary: The Thermaltake SpinQ Heatpipe CPU Cooler is a very good cooler for those looking for maximum performance with a unique design, and quiet operation. The design of the cooler is both eye-catching, and functional.
Pros: Looks very cool, Quiet while performing well, Manual fan speed controller, Includes mounts for all modern CPUs
Cons: A little too pricey, No external fan controller, Noticeably sharp cooling fins
