    Amazing heatsink for the price., January 11, 2010

    I don’t know what the other reviewers are complaining about. Seriously, anyone who knows anything knows that this heatsink was designed by Thermalright for Cogage, and thus it has some of the same issues that the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme has. If you want it to sit securely, get the Thermalright bolt through kit. In my case I had no choice but to get a bolt through kit because I wanted to use this heatsink with my Core i7 860 and EVGA P55 LE motherboard, but even if I was using a socket 1366 setup I still would have gotten the bolt through kit.

    Anyway, I ordered this cooler after reading [H]ardOCP’s review of a dozen different I7 heatsinks, in which they awarded the TRUE Spirit their Editor’s Choice Gold Award. It is an amazing little heatsink. Actually, I shouldn’t say little as it is quite large, though not as large is it’s Ultra 120 Extreme brothers. It was tall enough that I had to remove the side mounted fan from my Antec 900 because of clearance issues. Installation was not the easiest I have ever done due to the fact that the bolt through kit requires you to remove your motherboard (obviously if you use the pushpins you do not have to do this). However, I have done this so many times at this point it still only took me 10 minutes or so) The extent to which it bent my motherboard was a little concerning, but no problems have occurred. It is true that even after you secure it, it can be turned in place. However, it is only with great force that I can turn mine. I severely doubt that it will ever move even when I take my tower to lan parties. One other point, at first I was a little bit concerned about the less than perfect finish on the bottom of the heatsink (it does not appear to be perfectly flat, nor does it have a mirror finish). However, this has apparently in no way affected the performance, nor do I regret my decision to not lap the heatsink before installing it. I will say that the instructions were not as clear as they could have been, but it didn’t take me more than a couple of minutes to figure it out.

    In regards to cooling performance, this thing is amazing. I currently have my Core i7 860 overclocked to 3.8Ghz, with hyperthreading disabled, vcore at 1.275, and with ambient temperatures at around 14C I am getting load temperatures under Prime95 of 54C or under (usually under). The fan is not too loud out all (it is easily drowned out by my XFX 4890). That is another plus, unlike many other high end heatsinks, this one includes a fan.

    The bottom line is that for the price, this heatsink is very difficult to beat. Does it perform as well as the Ultra 120 Extreme? No, but is it half the price of the Ultra Extreme when you factor in the cost of a good fan? Yes. Does it give you close to the performance of its big brothers? Yes.

    I’m the kind of guy who cheers for the underdog, the little guy, the little train (heatsink) that could. If you want great performance at a low price, give the Cogage TRUE Spirit a chance.

    I bought this CPU cooler knowing that its the only one that fits well in a mid-tower case – 156mm compared to 160 or taller – and doesn’t cover any RAM slots on Asus P6T Deluxe. Packaging contains everything needed – Heatsink, 120mm Fan, Mounting clips, Thermalright Chill Factor Thermal Paste and a sticker. After spending about 20 minutes installing – manual is worthless – I have to take a star for the mounting system. It can be a pain and you have to figure out how to mount it, which is annoying – the cooler may slide a bit on the thermal paste and its hard to center it, the push-pin system overall sucks – you have to keep it locked, so it goes thru at first, unlock it, push down and then lock it, so it spreads the plastic pins. Took me a while. Overall performance increase was expected – idle fell 15*c, fan is pretty quiet for its size. Max load temps fell 20*c. Im still keeping the CPU stock, but the True Spirit should be enough to keep it cool.

    + Price
    + Efficiency
    + Looks
    + Thermal Paste
    - Push-Pin
    - Manual

    I recommend it to everyone who looks for a good cooling performance for light overclocks at a great price.

    Read lots of benchmarks, this was always the best on cost/performance ratio. Actually it was always high on the performance charts and cost like 20-30 bucks less than similar ones. Gave it a shot and couldn’t be happier, works like a charm. And my motherboard was actually bent inwards on the processor area after I tried like crazy to fit in the stock cooler that has those plastic pressure clips, what a disgraceful piece of equip and manual… after that, the stock cooler would not make contact with the processor even with thermal paste… I recommend you get the LGA 1366 bolt thru mounting kit, perfect for this one, and because of the backplate that goes under the MB and the pressure screws, it also solved my problem with the bent MB, now it makes perfect contact with the processor. At 100% load, my core i7 920 never goes beyond 65 celcius with this beauty…. before, it would rise up to over 100 Celcius an I would cancel the testing in order to avoid risking my cpu. You won’t regret buying this one!
