Final Thoughts


While the TherMax Pro is a stereotypical tower style cooler, Spire has done a good job of packing a load of features into a cooler with such a small footprint. With the use of easy to assemble hardware and even getting a fan controller included is a nice touch. I really think Spire is on the right track with this cooler.


The temperature performance puts the TherMax at the top third of our list, which isn't an easy feat to accomplish. The sound levels on the other hand were too much for me personally. The TherMax Pro scored last in this category, with a nice looking UV-reactive fan. While the UV is a nice added feature, I would rather do away with the flash and have a fan that performed close with less noise.


As far as complaining about this cooler, I have already addressed the noise, which is my only real complaint at all. Spire put out a very easy to install, universal cooler with the TherMax Pro. The noise factor alone will keep most HTPC users who can fit this cooler to pass it up as a choice. But Spire has designed a really competitive cooler here. Based on the $36 price tag and good performance, I would recommend this cooler in a smaller case where noise is not a factor.
