The fourth generation Swirl series
The Dutch company Spire has unveiled the 4th generation of its Swirl series CPU cooler, the new Swirl IV, which is based on a heatsink that features a unique design with swirl-shaped aluminum fins.
As noted, the new Swirl IV CPU cooler features an aluminum heatsink with a particularly shaped fin-stack, which is perpendicular to the motherboard. Inside this “cylinder” there is a pre-installed fan, which reminds us of something you can find on a reference-design graphics card and which pushes air in all directions through the heatsink fins.
The Swirl IV also features three 8mm nickel-plated copper heatpipes, which are enough to cool down a CPU with up to 130W TDP. The Swirl IV measures at 131 x 125 x 62 mm and weighs 690g. The fan spins at a variable speed between 600 and 2000 RPM, and provides 83.12 CFM of airflow while producing 26dBA of noise.
The Spire Swirl IV supports a vast number of modern CPU sockets, including Intel LGA 2011, LGA 115x as well as AMD AM3+ and FM2+ sockets.
The Spire Swirl IV should be already available with an MSRP of US $65, and backed by a 5-year warranty.
