Themaltake SpinQ CPU Cooler Looks Wicked

Thermaltake SpinQ

Thermaltake has been around for as long as I can remember manufacturing CPU coolers like the Orb series, and cases like the ever so popular Armor line. This time we are looking at their newest offering to the cooling world, the SpinQ. Legit Reviews began posting pictures of the SpinQ back in August when the staff saw it at NVISION 08, so if it looks familiar to you on the site that might be why. Due to its cooling fin arrangement this cooler is one of the more visually interesting coolers I have looked at this year, but more on this in a moment. Let’s take a quick look at the specifications for the SpinQ.
