Thermaltake SpinQ VT CPU Cooler looks dangerously sharp

There are a few ways to build a tower heatsink but some are less expensive to manufacture than others and you can’t go wrong with a design that has thoroughly withstood the test of time. Then again it’d get pretty boring if we didn’t have some variety.

Thermaltake’s SpinQ VT CPU cooler sports a radial set of jagged fins around a central hub fan which should make for some interesting performance characteristics. Overclockers Club has the review:

Thermaltake’s SpinQ VT is a tower style heatsink that is circular in design with a squirrel cage style fan to blow air through the entire surface area of the cooler. Air is pulled in through the top opening and pushed through the 50 nickel plated copper fins. The base is made of both copper and aluminum with three 6mm copper heatpipes running through the base plate carrying the thermal load to the copper fin array to be dispersed by the airflow from the fan. The whole assembly is nickel plated for a clean look.

It produces some very nice results although you can’t exactly strap another fan on to it like other coolers for that increased performance potential.
