Thermaltake V14 Pro CPU Cooler

Introduction

Introduction

Thermaltake is a company that really requires no introduction. The company which is based in TaiPei originally started its core business based on their extensive knowledge of PC thermal management during the era where the area of performance CPU cooling was exclusively for "overclockers" or PC enthusiasts. I'm sure many people would be familiar with Thermaltake's Big Typhoon cooler. Continuing on with their success, Thermaltake has adapted its knowledge and R&D into other areas as well as CPU cooling - more notably chassis design. However, today we have the opportunity to become acquainted with Thermaltake's V14 Pro CPU Cooler, which is a revision of the Thermaltake V1 CPU Cooler. Thermaltake has released a video on their YouTube channel of the V14 Pro which I have included for you below:


The V14 Pro features 98 large copper fins; 6 long copper heatpipes (1730mm in length); a 140mm fan; side flow design and a copper base in order to remove as much waste heat as possible from a processor. While the V14 Pro seems to have it covered, let's take a look at its specifications to see if we can ascertain anything else. As usual, the Thermaltake V14 Pro's specifications were unashamedly copied from Thermaltake's product page.

Weight 840g

Ok so the Thermaltake V14 Pro is quite a lump of a cooler weighing in at 840g, I hope Thermaltake have included a backplate with it. Apart from the weight the only other real concern that I have is with the dimensions of the CPU cooler itself. At 161mm high and 171mm wide, those with smaller chassis' may find it a tall order accommodating the Thermaltake V14 Pro. Anyway, let's head over the page to see how the V14 Pro should arrive at your place...

Thermaltake's V1 CPU Cooler received an upgrade and a name change, but will the V14 Pro CPU Cooler make the grade?

Does better then the Intel Stock Cooler but nothing much over all.

Unless it comes in really cheap, I don't really notice anything special about it.

Bit of a phail product really.
