PHYSICAL DETAILS - Cogage TRUE Spirit 1366

The TRUE Spirit features four copper heatpipes in a staggered array and 48 aluminum fins. It measures 133.0 x 53.4 x 163.8 mm (L x W x H) and weighs about 530 grams, 620 grams with the stock fan.

On average, the heatsink's fins are 0.40 mm thick and spaced 1.70 mm apart.

The fins slope downward toward one side like the Ultra-120 series, but the heatpipes are not nickel-plated.

The TRUE Spirit is not as thick as either the Ultra-120 eXtreme or even the original Ultra-120 pictured above right. It is almost a carbon copy of the Thermalright MUX-120, a LGA1156-only heatsink.

The heatpipes are sealed to the base with a healthy amount of solder.

Like most of Thermalright's heatsinks, the base is slightly convex, producing a distorted reflection. The convex shape of the base is apparently deliberate; Thermalright claims most Intel and AMD CPUs have integrated heat spreaders that are concave in shape.

Installed using the familiar Thermalright bolt-thru kit with the stock fan clipped on.
