As its name implies, the Silent Spirit is geared more towards those computer enthusiasts in search of quiet PC cooling solutions. The Spirit is a mostly aluminum based cooler, with quad copper heatpipes and base insert. It is not overly large, measuring roughly 100mm square. Weight is kept to a minimum at only a claimed 370g with fan attached. This fan is of the frameless, suspended variety, with a hydro dynamic bearing and features PWM smart control. It is rated for 2400 rpm and up to 45 cfm at an astonishing low 10 to 25 dB. The lifetime is listed at 50,000 hours, giving the Silent Spirit an extended five year warranty on operation.
