Thermalright True Spirit 140 BW Rev.A Cooler
With the view of the cooler now unimpeded, it is easy to see the offset of the tower in relation to the base of this cooler. Doing something this simple requires a lot of the heat pipes and their ability to make tight corners, but Thermalright has pulled it off. A large 140mm tower cooler that won't impede on much but maybe a motherboard screw.
While designing this tower they also decided against a flat fin layout. Here we see that the fins have an angle at the front and the back of the cooler to force the air against the fins, in hopes to make the tower more efficient sticking within the confines of most cases.
The view from the back of the cooler is near identical, and if not for the offset of this design, there really would not be much to address outside of that shift now being heavy on the left side. So, at this point, we will just point out the three rows of pipes spread across the fins, and the two piece base at the bottom that starts the heat transfer.
Since both sides are near identical as well, we grabbed this angle to show the holes made to allow a fan not only onto the front of this cooler via included wire fan clips, but there is a second set of holes to allow a second fan to ride on the back as well.
The top of the cooler has the top most fin anodized black, and in doing so makes the Thermalright name in the middle barely visible at this angle. We do have all six pipe tips exposed, showing how well they cover the fin area as they are spread out across them.
Getting the pipes on the longer side of the tower is a work of art with the multiple bends, the way they all stack next to each other, and while only two pipes deliver heat to the bottom two fins, the rest of the fins are pressed onto all six.
Since this side of the cooler is much shorter, there is less room for elegant bends and freeform design. Here almost immediately after leaving the base they make an immediate near ninety degree turn to run through the fin stack on the outside, and as they are closer to the middle, the bends get more extreme.
The finish of this base is near perfect in its smoothness, and the warning sticker's reflection attests to that fact. We also put a straight edge against this base and found while slightly convex, as you go out the deflection stays level, and doesn't curve off near the edges of the contact area.
