|Final Thoughts and Conclusion|
Today we've got a new cooler from Thermaltake on the test bench which is a new revision to the SpinQ cooler that we tested a while back (full review here). The Thermaltake SpinQ VT is most definitely a unique design and is pretty tough to compare to anything else other than the original SpinQ.
Thermaltake has quite a wide range of CPU coolers available and it should be very interesting to see where the SpinQ fits into the picture performance-wise.
The SpinQ VT has a unique design and is pretty tough to compare to anything else other than the original SpinQ. The SpinQ VT is a vertical cooler unlike the original SpinQ which was more horizontal, as well as the SpinQ VT is sporting a red LED while the original SpinQ was rocking the blue LED. The SpinQ VT has more of a jet engine design and looks pretty interesting and is nice and shiny.
As you can clearly see the SpinQ VT uses a heatpipe design like pretty much every other cooler available. The SpinQ however uses a bit of a different design as compared to most other coolers and looks like a giant turbine.
As you can see in the picture below (right), the SpinQ VT features fan control via a manual dial which allows you to set the fan speed anywhere from 1000-1600 RPM depending on how much performance you need or how quiet you want your system to be.
The accessories included with the SpinQ VT are pretty standard (pictured below, right). You'll get everything you need to install this cooler on a wide variety of sockets plus a case badge for your case. Nothing out of the ordinary as far as accessories go.
So there we go, that's what the SpinQ VT looks like, let's see if it can perform as well as it looks.
