Thermaltake has given us the opportunity to look at the recently released, award winning Thermaltake SpinQ. Winning awards like the 2009 CES Innovation Design and Engineering Award certainly gives it something to wow about. The cylinder shape heatsink has over 50 aluminum fins aligned in a spiral shape and cooled by a turbine-like fan with a blue LED. Looking to trick out your case with sweet looking products? This is probably one product you’re going to want to add to your list.
- Cylinder Heatsink and Spiral Aluminum Fins are absolutely a presentation of aesthetics.
- Eye-catching ScurveT Blade Fan plus blue LED makes it unforgettable
- 50 waved aluminum fins, 6 copper heatpipes and generates efficient cooling performance
- Mirror coating copper base conducts heat effectively from CPU and gets more surfaces to dissipate the heat
Smart Airflow Design
- Integrated with the System to maximize the cooling performance
- VRT Fan allows the users to adjust the fan speed according to their needs. It makes good cooling effect at low speed and generates minimum noise.
- Cylindrical Structure dissipates the hot air with 360 degrees

The SpinQ comes packed in a high quality retail package that is fairly large in size. The SpinQ can be seen through a hole cut in the front of the package which also includes a lit up image of it. The back of the package covers the major features of the SpinQ and shows an image of it installed in a system. One of the sides covers the more detailed specifications for the CPU cooler.
The SpinQ is housed in a plastic container which also includes the box of parts. Surprisingly the hardware supplied with this cooler is very minimal as compared to other CPU coolers. Also included in the box are the User Manual and the Warranty information.
