    The TMEIII is the next evolution of the hugely successful TherMax Eclipse CPU cooler series. The increased number of heat-pipes combined with a higher number and density of dimpled fins and crowned with two (2) high airflow, Nano Bearing DC fans for extreme cooling performance. Five (5) U-shaped 8 mm all-copper heat-pipes are in direct contact with the CPU heat-spreader (heat source), rapid heat transfer to the 45 aluminum dimpled fins providing a larger surface area for optimum heat dissipation.

    The TME III is supplied with two (2) 12 cm BlackStar 7 blades, high quality precision Nano - Bearing DC fans, providing high airflow and sufficient cooling. These fans are PWM controlled to provide the best sound / cooling ratio possible. Compatibility is guaranteed with multi-platform mounting for all current Intel and AMD micro-processors. The TME III brings cooling power to an all-new level. Another amazing product from Spire - Powered by Innovation.

    looks to be a good cooler, Still seems like tower based air cooler are the most efficient but the dual radiator leads the way. since I'm in the market for a nice air cooler Ill be awaiting reviews on this one. I'm not sure that it would be necessary for a i5 2500k or an ivy bridge though.

    Going to need a rather large CPU heatspreader to make decent use of all those heatpipes.

    Looks like it could be a decent performer though.

    I always wanted the eclipse II, but it was never in stock.


    I got a TRUE instead.


    This should be a monster performer.

    Wow, I didn't realize TherMax Eclipse II beat NH-D14! The only drawback is that it's noisier.
