After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Heat capacity for a process like this can usually be estimated by the number of heatpipes, diameter of the heatpipes, their proximity to the heatsource, and the size of the radiator. Of course the more you have the better it will be.
In this review we will be looking at a tower style cooler from Spire called the TherMax II. The TherMax II is based on a large diameter 4 heatpipe design using a single cooling fan and aluminum radiator.
You get a single 120mm UV reactive cooling fan with the TherMax II that will move 99CFM at 2400rpm with a maximum noise rating of 34dB.
