Thermaltake V1 CPU Cooler - Testing Results

Using our trusted T.E.C.C. testing methods, we compare Thermaltake's V1 to all of our previously tested coolers.

Test Results


TweakTown uses a different method for testing CPU heatsinks which allows for an even playing field across all product tests. We feel that by using the same ambient temperature and strict lab-like testing procedures we are able to accurately compare one product to another. More information on our testing procedure can be found in the T.E.C.C. article here.



Despite using less heatpipes, the V1 runs toe to toe with the MaxOrb we previously tested. This puts it at the top of our cooling charts for dissipating heat.



At idle speeds the V1 does a much better job than the MaxOrb but at full load it is still very loud. The cooler also rattles at full speed making a very annoying tin can sound. Since the fins are so close together at the base I would assume that two or more of them are just far enough apart that the fans vibration makes them touch together in places.
