Cooling/CPU Cooling by leeghoofd @ 2013-03-31

The Thermalright company is one of the market leaders in processor, graphics cards and chipset cooling. Sporting great designs with innovative ideas, Thermalright has truly deserved it's current position in the very competitive world of aftermarket cooling solutions. Today we review the latest addition to their lineup, the True Spirit 120M CPU cooler. The new kid on the block is based on the their best selling True Spirit cooler. Hence why the product name is practically the same. The addition of the M comes from the increased Memory compatibility this new 120M CPU cooler has. Let's see what all the fuzz is about.

The packaging, besides the addition of the M letter hasn't changed at all. Why change a winning combination ? If you look closer you can spot our sample got (again) abused by the delivery guy, the cooler however was 100% intact.





At first glance , this cooler seems identical to it's predecessor. However the bottom right picture shows where the enhanced ram compatibility comes from. The four heatpipes are angled and displace the cooling tower from the CPU contact base.



While regular tower coolers are usually around 160mm in height, the Spirit line is only 145mm in height. The total cooling surface is made out of 46 fin pieces. The cooler itself weighs in at 470 grams.

The base consists out of C1100 pure nickel plated copper. The four slanted 6mm heatpipes allow this new 120M Spirit model to achieve the same cooling capacity then the previous model, yet with far better RAM compatibility.
