Thermaltake SpinQ VT CPU Cooler Final Thoughts:

The SpinQ VT is one of the more unique looking coolers that we've tested in a while. Just like the original SpinQ, the SpinQ VT uses a different design than most coolers and the unique appearance might be enough for some users alone to make this cooler their next upgrade. Luckily the looks aren't the only thing the SpinQ VT have going for it, it can also provide a very significant cooling performance upgrade over stock cooling while looking good.

The performance of the SpinQ VT was very decent and when compared to all of the other coolers we've tested it was able to hold its own. The performance wasn't anything groundbreaking, but when compared to the others it was right in the middle and offers a nice 15 degree temperature decrease over stock cooling.

 

The MSRP on the SpinQ VT is $59.99 USD making it a little more expensive then some of the cooler we tested it against, however for a high quality CPU cooler you're going to be spending $50+ dollars so the MSRP is pretty fair in my opinion (if you search online you can probably find this cooler for ~$40 USD).

The installation of the SpinQ VT is simple, and if your upgrading you're stock cooling you won't even need to remove your motherboard which is a nice bonus. Compatibility also should be no issue seeing as the SpinQ VT supports pretty much every major chipset in the last few years from both AMD and Intel.

At the end of the day it's pretty easy to like the Thermaltake SpinQ VT thanks to its unique design, good performance and easy installation. Thanks to these features we've awarded the SpinQ VT our "Editor's Choice - Gold" award. If you're in the market for a new cooler that doesn't look like everyone else's then you will want to give the Thermaltake SpinQ VT some serious consideration.

  • Good Performance
