In 2012, with the introduction of low wattage CPU’s also the change in the mainstream preferences towards smaller and minimalistic PC cases, we at Thermalright have also adjusted our lineup. Traditional 160mm tower coolers may now have compatibility issues with mainstream cases. This is why we’ve designed the world’s smallest 120mm fan based cooler, the True Spirit 120M!Built on the basis of Thermalright’s successful True Spirit 120, the True Spirit 120M.Built on the basis of Thermalright’s successful True Spirit 120, the True Spirit 120M is Thermalright advancement towards Silence, Performance and Compatibility. Made specifically for Micro ATX users, the total height is only 145mm, almost 16% lower than the 160mm Tower standards that Thermalright has set years ago. Along with a full sized 120mm fan, the True Spirit 120M is the best companion for your slim case.By fine tuning the four high quality copper heatpipes, engineered to be slanted toward the back of the cooler, Thermalright has managed to keep the same heat
dissipation surface area and 120mm fan. The beauty of the new heatpipe design is that it effectively eliminates all RAM interference issues. 
The True Spirit 120M allows Micro ATX and slim case user to be free from mediocre coolers, opening the door for extreme overclocking and high-end RAM.The True Spirit 120M’s 120mm PWM fan lets users strike a perfect combination of airflow and silence. Universally compatible with all modern sockets on the market

When it comes to the package, Thermalright did a great job with the artwork and the layout. The rigid cardboard protects the Cooler while providing just enough information and specs. On one side of the package you will notice it introduces Thermalright’s Zero Ram Interference design as one of its special features.





Moving onto the side of package you will find specifications listed in 6 different languages.

Thermalright also did a great job with its hardware kit for installation on both Intel and AMD set-ups. They included hardware for Intel LGA 2011/1155/1366/1156/775 and AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2.
