Spire 5T060B1H3R BigRock Review with online sound

In this review we have tested the Spire 5T060B1H3R BigRock Cooler and measured the temperature results with our test setup. Additionally you can listen to an embedded MP3 fan sound sample of the fan on the respective heatsink.

Name Spire 5T060B1H3R BigRock
Size over all L/B/H + 74/78/62 mm The heatsink is bigger than the Socket – see Fit for Fan guide !
Cooling output +++ 26.3 CFM (~4200 U/min)
Noise level ++ 31.8 dB (A) The fan isn’t loud. Listen to the sound:
Mounting + The metal clip is a little bit inside of the heatsink, so it’s not very easy to install the heatsink.
Cooling results +++ Good cooling result with 42°C at 1.75 V and 45°C with 1.90 Volt.

General impression

++ Also the Spire BigRock heatsink cooler combination is a full aluminium based cooler with a weight of 270 grams. The installation isn’t as good as of the Spire SuperRock and the temperatur was minimal (about one degree) higher. But this BigRock cooler will also find its way in several PC-systems because of the good price of this aluminium cooler.

This fan is also fit for using with a Peltier Element ! Many thanks to Spire
for this test sample.
