X2 Rolls Out the CoolStorm T402B Spider Red CPU Cooler

Spire's gamer-centric brand, X2 Products, unveiled the CoolStorm T402B Spider Red CPU cooler. Featuring a conventional tower-type design, the cooler features an all-black aluminium fin-stack, complete with black anodized heat-pipes. The cooler's four 6 mm-thick copper heat-pipes make direct contact with the CPU at the base, conveying heat through the fin-stack. The fin-stack has jagged edges to increase turbulence and heat-dissipation. Ventilating it is a 120 mm fan that has two red plastic accents along the black fan-frame. The impeller isn't illuminated.

The fan features a hydraulic bearing that's rated for 100,000 hours, takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins between 800 to 2,000 RPM, and pushes between 10 and 45.21CFM of air, with a noise output ranging between 20 to 33 dBA. The cooler can handle thermal loads of up to 135 W, and hence gives HEDT sockets a miss. The only CPU socket types it supports are AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), and Intel LGA115x. With its fan in place, the cooler measures 123 mm x 73 mm x 156.5 mm (WxDxH), and weighs a little over 250 g. Backed by a 2-year warranty, it is priced at USD $45.

Did Spire Copy the Patented X-bows Ergonomic Keyboard Without Authorisation?

Earlier this week, we posted the story of the Spire Ergo, purported as the first tenkeyless ergonomic mechanical keyboard. Soon after its publication, two parties reached out to us. Spire sought a price correction from USD $80 (plus taxes) originally mentioned, to $99.95 +taxes, with an optional palm-rest at an additional $30. The second party, was a company we never heard of, called X-bows.

As it turns out, they (X-bows) have been selling this exact keyboard worldwide for $199, and this is their flagship (sole) product. Their entire brand is built around this keyboard. In an angry e-mail, X-bows asked us to delete the story because they claim Spire has violated its patented design. X-bows says that the Chinese branch of Spire approached them for collaboration, although no agreement was reached between the two companies. We then naturally turned to Spire for some answers.

AMD Ryzen Stock Cooling Solutions Detailed

AMD is expected to package its upcoming Ryzen desktop processors in five ways - OEM trays (for system integrators and big pre-built PC manufacturers), PIB (processor in a box) with its basic fan-heatsink cooling solution, PIB with the new Wraith Spire cooling solution; PIB with the new Wraith Max cooling solution, and WOF (without fan-heatsink consumer). You can find the various models of Ryzen processors listed in our older article.

AMD's first wave of Ryzen processors consist of 65W and 95W TDP chips. Some of the more cost-effective models, such as the quad-core Ryzen R3 and SMT-equipped quad-core Ryzen R5, and certain variants of the six-core Ryzen R5, which have their TDP rated at 65W, could include AMD's basic cooling solution. According to XFastest, this cooler will look identical to the ones AMD used to bundle with its FX-series processors, before it innovated its Wraith cooling solution (representative image below). These coolers were being bundled with 125W TDP FX-series chips, and will now be re-tuned for low noise for the 65W TDP Ryzen chips, and will feature AM4 compatibility. Given this, we expect them to do a good job.
