True Spirit 120i


With the True Spirit 120i Thermalright - true to the motto "innovated - not imitated" - presents a cooler specially designed for selected mini-ITX systems.
The innovative layout of the heat sink is aimed at owners of mini-ITX boards on H87/Z87 base (MSI, Gigabyte, ASRock and EVGA), who do not want to miss an efficient cooling.
The aluminum cooling fins of the True Spirit 120i are staggered, so that the radiator will no longer block the PCIe slot, if it is directly adjacent to the CPU socket. This constellation is found in many Z87 Mini-ITX boards, whereby the use of tower coolers is generally excluded. Thermalright now provides a solution - the 120i is the only powerful tower heatsink with 120mm fan that fits on these motherboards.

Please note that the True Spirit 120i can display its true brilliance only on current H87/Z87 Mini-ITX boards according to the compatibility list. A compatibility with Mini-ITX boards from other manufacturers cannot be guaranteed.

Due to its low height of just 150 mm, the cooler is best suited for use in small PC cases with compact Mini ITX systems. To exclude certain incompatibilities with RAM modules or motherboard components, the four 6 mm high performance heat pipes are slightly angled, which in addition to the reduced height also results in a larger gap between RAM banks and heatsink.

The copper heatpipes are nickel-plated and offer in combination with the black anodized top-fin a very elegant appearance, probably unique in a cooler in this price range. With the revised design, Thermalright combines the high-quality optics of the high-priced high-end coolers with the award-winning, outstanding price-performance ratio of the proven "value" models.

In addition to the attractive price the innovative design, the reasonable dimensions and the low weight of just 605 grams including the fan are key features of the True Spirit 120i. The processing of the cooler is of the highest quality.

The tower cooler is equipped with four 6 mm strong high-end heatpipes which are optimally positioned to discharge the absorbed processor heat to the 46 aluminium fins. The wide spacing of the aluminium fins and the large cooling surface allow an outstanding performance, even at the lowest fan speeds and noise levels. The particular angled design of the cooling fins is designed to minimize air resistance and contributes measurably to the efficient heat dissipation.

A high-quality 120 mm fan is included, which uses the PWM signal of the motherboard (if supported) to automatically and continuously adjust the fan speed between 600 – 1,300 rpm (+/- 15%). Thus the optimal ratio between sound volume (max. 25.4 dBa) and cooling capacity is guaranteed at all times, without the need to manually engage. The fan covers the heat sink almost completely, thus ensuring the most efficient heat dissipation possible.

The True Spirit 120i is multiplatform-compatible and includes mounting material for all common CPU-sockets:

The cooler can be used on Intel LGA 775/1156/1366/1155/2011/1150/2011-3/1151* as well as on AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2 boards.

*We strongly recommend to use our specially designed 1151 Support Spacer when mounting the cooler on LGA11 “Skylake” CPUs. Please send us an email, to receive them for free.
