Although the winter season is not the most ideal time for people to go out to get a brand new CPU Cooler either to replace the stock and somewhat weak (and loud) Intel/AMD HSF or upgrade to something better from an aftermarket solution due to low temperatures still new products are released almost on a daily basis and it's our job to test them. Now as most of you know tower (U-type) CPU Coolers have been around for over half a decade but aside minor design and size differences the main concept/base is always the same. However this is quite understandable since their cooling performance levels are already very good and in some cases they are even maxed out which is why many of the leading manufacturers in the market are turning towards compact liquid CPU Coolers. Not everyone however can afford a liquid CPU Cooler and there are always those who can but don't want to spend much so because of that today we decided to test the latest U-type tower design CPU Cooler by Spire, the X2.9883.

Much like many similar units out in the market the X2.9883 CPU Cooler by Spire is basically a mid-sized, nickel plated tower CPU Cooler with a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 130W (max=150W), universal CPU Compatibility (Intel/AMD), D.T.H (direct touch heatpipe) base, six 6mm all-copper heatpipes and a 5 year warranty. One of its strong cards however is the bundled 120mm PWM nano precision bearing fan with which the X2.9883 promises top notch cooling performance levels with minimum noise. Certainly we've heard similar claims before by pretty much every single manufacturer out there so the time has come for us to see whether or not the X2.9883 delivers on what it promises.
