Spire Reveals X2 Eclipse IV CPU Cooler

Dutch manufacturer Spire has introduced a new CPU cooler, the X2 Eclipse IV. The cooler is a tower-type with two fans and six heat pipes.

The six heat pipes, which are 6 mm thick and nickel-plated, take the heat from the nickel-plated copper base to the aluminum fin stack, which has a 'shark-teeth' design for better airflow. The cooler is also designed to allow for plenty of memory module clearance.

Spire has equipped the cooler with two fans, each featuring the nano-tech bearings. They are 120 mm PWM fans that can spin at speeds ranging from 800 RPM to 2000 RPM. At the maximum speed, they push up to 76 CFM and make no more than 24 dBA of noise. The entire unit features 200 W of cooling power.

The unit will fit on most modern CPU sockets, including Intel's LGA1150 as well as AMD's AM3+ and FM2 sockets. 

Spire X2 has priced the Eclipse IV with an MSRP of $59.95; there was no word yet on availability.

    Likin' the looks of it. If the performance matches that price, I'm interested.

    Im quite interested why in gods name the cooler manufacturers dont make heatpipes of different opening width. Its quite clear that if all 6 heatpipes are in the same line, the heat builds up closest to them on the fin pins and dosent move efficiently to the other parts of the cooler.

    Becouse of this, the efficiency of the cooler is significantly reduced.

    However, if the heatpies were in an Inverted V, the pressure of the air would actually increse the cooling power of the air that went throught the block.

    From the miniature I thought it's the first elliptical fan.
