Spire Gemini SP986B1-V2-2P Heatsink Review Spire Gemini SP986B1-V2-2P Heatsink Review
Spire's Gemini SP986B1-V2-2P heatsink is a minor variation on the popular Eclipse II tower heatsink design, the most notable difference being a novel bifurcated fin stack. To 'bifurcate' means to split into two... so in other words, the fin stack is split down the middle and the fin edges are closed off so air can only pass through the heatsink from front-to-back.

Spire Thermax Eclipse II SP984B1-V2 Heatsink Review Spire Thermax Eclipse II SP984B1-V2 Heatsink Review
Standing 155mm tall, the Thermax Eclipse II heatsink weighs 822 grams and ships with two 120mm fans. Only one fan needs to be installed (default configuration), but if you think two fans are better than one be prepared for a moderately loud outcome. Both 120mm fans are non-PWM, so they rotate at a fixed 2200RPM all the time.

Spire Fourier IV SP607B3C Heatsink Review Spire Fourier IV SP607B3C Heatsink Review
Spire's Fourier IV SP607B3-C is a heavy heatsink, and it installs with very secure mounting hardware that is quite inconvenient.

Spire DiamondCool II SP741B3 AMD Athlon64 Heatsink Review Spire DiamondCool II SP741B3 AMD Athlon64 Heatsink Review
The DiamondCool II SP741B3 is one of those heatsinks that's just hard to peg at first glance. It's a hefty AMD Athlon64 heatsink made of copper for sure, and copper means it has to be good right?

Spire VertiCool II SP601B3 AMD Athlon64 Heatsink Review Spire VertiCool II SP601B3 AMD Athlon64 Heatsink Review
Gimicks and flashy chrome plated parts are absent on the Spire VertiCool II SP601B3 save for a UV reactive "Spider-Fan" frame.

Spire Verticool SPA49B0 Socket A Heatsink Review Spire Verticool SPA49B0 Socket A Heatsink Review
A single 80x25mm fan forces air through a stacked array of aluminum fins, connected to the lower half of the heatsink by two "U" shaped 6mm diameter copper heatpipes.

Spire SPA04B4 WhisperRock IV Copper Core Heatsink Spire SPA04B4 WhisperRock IV Copper Core Heatsink
The inward curve of the heatsink means that noise levels can be kept under control with the large 35mm thick fan above, while still maintaining the profile necessary to make it mountable.

Spire SP411C5 QuieTude II Heatsink Review Spire SP411C5 QuieTude II Heatsink Review
At 300RPM the SP411C5 is good in the noise department, but at higher temperatures it can get somewhat loud.

Spire 5F271B1L3 Copper Core Heatsink Review Spire 5F271B1L3 Copper Core Heatsink Review
If done properly, the copper will ultimately increase the surface area of the heat source enticing quicker transmission to the outer fins more effectively.

Spire BFA07B2 Copper Core Heatsink Review Spire BFA07B2 Copper Core Heatsink Review
Based on an older design which did not feature a copper insert, the BFA07B2 can almost be considered a second generation heatsink.

Who remembers the time when big loud fans were being slapped onto undersized heatsinks and being sold to consumers hungry for some overclocking?
