    If your CPU keeps overheating while you're overclocking, Spire just put a very cool solution on the market. Its new Swirl CPU cooler is a quality copper and aluminum creation that can help you get the job done no matter what you're cranking.

    The Swirl CPU cooler looks a little like a large six-legged aluminum bug mounted on a tall cylindrical pedestal. It uses three sintered powder all copper heat pipes that are nearly a centimeter thick. Its all copper base and aluminum fins provide good cooling for those hot 130W to 150W microprocessors.

    The Swirl does its job in style, with both good looks and quality construction. Its heat sink and heat pipes are both soldered and protected with a thin layer of dark nickel coating. The coating not only preserves the Swirl's looks, but protects it from oxidation. Its fan, mounted vertically, features four bright red LEDs. If you enjoy modding your case, just imagine how sweet that red glow will look right near your computer's “brain.”

    The Swirl offers a lot more than just killer good looks. Spire designed it with straight-lined heat pipes to let air easily pass through. The vertical 7.5 centimeter fan sports nine blades, and a manual fan speed control. Its PCI controller lets you set the fan's speed from 800 RPM to 2000 RPM. Want more proof of its quality? The Swirl comes with a five-year manufacturer-supported warranty.

    Do you prefer Intel inside, or AMD? It doesn't matter; the Swirl supports both. Specifically, it is compatible with the latest ATX boards based on the Intel and AMD Micro-processors sockets 775/1156/1366 for Intel and AM2/AM3/940/939 for AMD.

    The Swirl's manufacturer suggested retail price is $52.99 in the US, or EUR 36.99 elsewhere. For that price, you get the Swirl heat sink, vertical fan, one PCI fan speed control unit, BlueFrost thermal interface compound, Intel universal mounting set, AMD universal mounting set, motherboard back-plate, user installation manual, and warranty registration card.

    Spire hopes to appeal to enthusiasts, gamers, and professionals alike with this CPU cooler. If you want more information, you can check out the cooler on Spire's product page for the Swirl: http://www.spire-corp.com/main/product_detail.asp?ProdID=975.
