    Default Thermalright True Spirit 120m CPU Cooler

    Over the years we have seen hundreds of air coolers of various models and designs. From the smaller coolers to the larger twin tower coolers, performance is always a key factor when it comes to finding the right product. Today we are going to be looking to a new unique design by Thermalright. It is called the True Spirit 120m. Does it have the right aesthetic appeal and how does it stack up with some of today's coolers in thermal performance? That is what we will attempt to answer in our review today.

    Thanks Stan, Yea, Its a awesome little cooler.. Best thing about it is that it doesn't block the ram Dimms..and pricing of the cooler isn't bad either.

    Great review and a nice little air cooler Kenny. It's RAM clearance is golden, as some of us don't have low profile RAM to use on every system.

    Thanks for the review Kenny. This looks like the cooler for me. I've held off buying a tower cooler precisely because of ram interference. Now I have a viable choice!
