Spire 5F271B1L3 FalconRock I Socket A/370 Cooler
review by David, 18 November 2002



Fanner is a name that is no stranger to the world of CPU cooling solutions. Marketing a wide range of coolers under different brands including Speeze and Spire, they have a reputation of producing budget level coolers that perform quite well on today's high heat producing CPUs.

The Spire 5F271B1L3 FalconRock I Socket A/370 Cooler is a socket-based cooler, compatible with both Intel socket 370 and AMD socket 462 configurations. This cooler is the exact same as the Spire 5F263 we reviewed way earlier, with the exception of two improvements on the 5F271B1L3:

  • 3 prong clip
  • Copper slug embedded into the base
