Closer Look at Thermalright True Spirit

I have to start by saying that Thermalright True Spirit cooler manufactured in Taiwan is not so new, really, because it was launched back in 2009 by Thermalright’s daughter brand – Cogage. The black-and-yellow cardboard box is not particularly informative. Among the useful details we could only mention the cooler specifications:

As for the bundled accessories, they are quite numerous and include retention kits for all contemporary platforms, Chill Factor II thermal paste and an installation manual:

We have already seen this heatsink before:

 

 

It consists of four copper heatpipes 6 mm in diameter going through the copper plate and 0.45 mm thick aluminum plates pressed firmly against these heatpipes. There are 48 plates total and they are spaced out at 2 mm distance from one another:

 

There are only two things that are different compared with the heatsink of the Cogage True Spirit cooler we tested before: there are no decorative caps on the ends of the heatpipes and the base is a little different:

 

The heatpipes are soldered to the nickel-plated base plate, while there is no soldering between the heatpipes and the heatsink plates.
