Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The SpireTherMax Pro is a relatively small cooler only measuring 125mm in height. The base of the cooler features three 8mm Direct Touch heat pipes that take the heat to the 45 stamped aluminum fins. The TherMax Pro is equipped with a 90mm Blue Star UV-reactive fan to whisk the heat away. Spire has also designed all of their mounting hardware to work off of the same retention clamps, to ease the installation process and keep things simple.
The TherMax Pro is designed to only accept one 90mm fan. Spire has released the TherMax Pro with a 53.12 CFM version of the BlueStar UV-reactive fan. The Spire TherMax II uses a 93.3 CFM version. Both of the BlueStar fans are rated to run at 29 dBA max, which is a bit more than the usual 21 dBA that most companies list. Spire has included a PCI-slot mountable fan controller, so that you may find the balance between fan noise and performance.
While Spire does have this cooler already on the Asian and European markets, it will not be available on US shelves until March of this year. I wasn't able to actually locate this cooler on any of my various searches through Google and Yahoo, both with EU searches. I was told from Spire that the cooler is 27.00 in the European market. With just a currency conversion, the cost would translate to around the $36 mark. Look for availability of the TherMax Pro to hit the shelves at Cool PC and Coolerguys.com first upon their US release.
