Spire Intros Frontier Plus CPU Cooler

Spire today introduced the Frontier Plus mainstream CPU cooler (model: SP994A2-B). This tower-type cooler is characterized by a side-flow channeling aluminium fin-stack design what pushes some of the fan's air-flow sideways through the fin-stack, to cool the CPU VRM, in addition to most of it going out through the rear side of your case. It otherwise features a conventional tower-type fin-stack design.

Two 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU at an aluminium base (which has some heatsink ridges of its own); conveying heat through the fin-stack, which is ventilated by a 92 mm fan. This fan spins up to 2,200 RPM. The cooler measures 124 mm x 61 mm x 13.9 mm, weighing in at 254 g. Spire claims that the cooler can handle thermal loads of up to 120W. It supports only mainstream-desktop sockets of this generation - LGA115x and AM4. Available now, it's priced at 39.95€.

How come this is 40€, yet I managed to buy a Xigamtek Loki for 20€. Granted, it was back in 2010, but copper that pricey now?

What a complete and utter ripoff. Even 30 euros would buy you a freezer i32, a zounds better cooler.
