In the nearest time, Thermalright is going to present TRUE Spirit 120 Direct, which is a cooling device of an average efficiency. This construction weighs around 600 g and is 120 mm long, 67 mm wide and 141 mm high. It will apparently cost less than TRUE Spirit 140 Direct models (going for approximately $47).
The heatsink of TRUE Spirit 120 Direct consists of an aluminium pressure plate, four U-shaped copper nickelized 6 mm heat pipes and tens of perforated aluminium plates. The 120 mm fan is attached to the radiator by standard wire spikes. The rotary speed of this unit is unknown yet, however, taking into account another 120 mm fan cooler (TRUE Spirit 120M BW Rev.A), we may assume it will not exceed 1,500 rpm.
It is remarkable that in the lower part the fan is located almost at the base level. Such a strange design may prove its worth in systems, including motherboards with massive, but ineffective VRM heatsinks.
