Today we are looking at the newest version of the True Spirit from Thermalright. The Thermalright True Spirit has four 6mm heatpipes and 48 aluminum fins to help keep your processor nice and cool. Join us as we put the updated cooler to the test on our Intel Core i7-930 test system and see how it stacks up against some of the best coolers we have tested.

yeah, Thermalright used to be the king of the hill, until Noctua and its clones came along. I'm glad to see it is still kicking and with this cooler it took back the crown for the low budget CPU coolers. I wanna see a high performance bigger brother from them.
yeah Noctua knocked em off because Noctua offer industry leading support, upgrade mounts at no or low cost and of good design.
Thermalright on the other hand offer rubbish support, do not upgrade mounts to new sockets, and even when they do they are mostly rubbish.
I used to be a big Thermalright fan till they dumped on me big time. Learn from others mistakes - its easier that way - stay away from thermalright unless you're an environmental vandal - and you just throw big lumps of shiny metal away every year.
