Cogage TRUE Spirit
Cogage is the brand name for mainstream Thermalright products, and the name stands for Computer and Gaming Gear. The Cogage TRUE Spirit is a more-affordable version of the extremely popular Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme CPU cooler. Both products share the same mounting clip system and base design, but the TRUE Spirit offers only four heat-pipe rods instead of six. Other differences include a light-weight design, reducing the original TRUE (16cm H x 13.2 W x 6.3 L) into the TRUE Spirit (16cm H x 13.2 W x 5.3 L). Overall the Cogage TRUE Spirit closely resembles the Ultra-120 eXtreme, right down to the 58 aluminum bent-winglet fins.
The Cogage TRUE Spirit kit Benchmark Reviews received for testing came with a 120mm cooling fan and traditional Intel push-pin style mounting clip system. Cogage was kind enough to also include the aftermarket LGA1366 Bolt-Thru-Kit by Thermalright (UPC 814256-00079), which was utilized for all tests on the TRUE Spirit as well as the Ultra-120 eXtreme. While the included push-pin mounting system is adequate at best, the aftermarket kit worked extremely well and shared a similar design to the Prolimatech Megahalems. As of October 2009 the Cogage TRUE Spirit was available at FrozenCPU for $39.95.
