Installation:

Installation of the Thermaltake SpinQ VT on a LGA1336 CPU is a breeze. It's been a while since I've tested a aftermarket cooler that has used the stock cooling brackets and whenever I get one on the bench I really appreciate just how easy and quick it is to install due to the fact that you won't need to remove your motherboard to install a bracket or anything.

If you are upgrading from stock cooler you should be able to get this cooler installed in under 10 minutes with no issues.

As you can see in the pictures the SpinQ VT isn't a huge cooler and doesn't even come close to interfering with any of the other components on our test system. The only thing to take note of is that the SpinQ VT is a taller cooler than some so you might want to make sure your case can support it, however, most mid or full towers should have no issues whatsoever.
