    The Spire all new Kepler universal micro-processor cooler series are direct contact heat-pipe solutions for Core i3/i5 and i7 from Intel and the AMD AM2/3/FM1 micro-processors. There are three (3) different models ranging from two up to four 6mm sinter powder heat-pipes which are in direct contact with the cpu heat-source, dissipating heat effectively and fast.

    The high density fins are crowned with a powerful fan for high airflow and great cooling performance. The 92mm dc fan provides ample airflow and silent cooling at 19.0dBA. Compatibility is ensured with the multi-platform mounting clip for Intel 775/1155/1156 sockets and AM2/AM3/FM1 micro-processors. The Kepler series from Spire are build to deliver great cooling for maximum system performance.

    *yawn*

    Move along - nothing new to see here....

    the market is FLOODED with these tower coolers. If Tower Coolers were women - you could have one for every day of the week for a whole month or 2 before you call the first one out to dinner again.

    The market has been flooded with these clones since the C2D age. what makes brands think that theres any serious money to be made by flogging off a cooler of thats exactly the same as 100 other coolers out there? There is no market for this.

    I'm curious, could you tell me what these company's should be making? and no, no sarcasm or anything, i'm honestly curious in what you think would be better than these relatively cheap tower coolers.

    Every tom, dick and harry out there is releasing cheap tower coolers. theres hundreds to choose from. they cant be making much from them at all

    AC do it, OCZ do it, Scythe do it, Thermaltake do it, EVERYONE does it.

    its all about avilability, price and the brand name itself.

    If this cooler can reach markets that are potentially free from tower coolers. then they have struck gold. other wise every computer store will stock about 10 of the same tower coolers from different brands.

    all you need to do is pick one - then all the other brands lose out on the sale and they lose money because you didnt perchase their cooler.

    ----

    They probably make really small batches of these coolers and dont renew the order to make more. they would just end up collecting dust in a warehouse anyway

    They would not be making them if they did not make reasonable money off of it. We would not see so many companies producing them if they did not make money off of it. The cost of r&d even on something relatively simple would be beyond the making small batches concept.

    You have to keep in mind some countries don't have massive amounts of pc's like UK and USA. In some of those countries if they can afford an aftermarket HS these cheap towers might be it. A 50+ unit might be beyond reach. We are talking about a world wide market!

    Spire has pretty much been on the low end for as long as I can remember. The fins on that HS are probably razor sharp. My experience with Spire products say avoid them at all cost.

    lol, directly stealing the product name of an nvidia GPU seems not too resourceful to me!:laugh:
