Default Thermaltake SpinQ (spiral heat sink wth?)

Curious in what the real benefit would be in designing a heat sink that looks like this:

Nothing except it's impossible to change the fan if he ever died. ThermalTake have lost a big part of my support these last years because they are building overpriced product ( most of the time ) with only a look, No real performance ( outstanding ) or innovation. Maybe one day they will lose many TT fan-boy so they will be needed to go another way for their product but for now, they are not on my case list and even less on my cooler list.

I don't know about functionality but i admit it looks dead sexy. TBH though I am losing it for TT as well, getting rid of the armor+ case once I can get my hands on somewhere to store the hard drives and selling it

Yeah, not using a replaceable fan is a big detractor in my book.
