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

Final Thoughts


The Thermaltake V1 is a decent cooler for everyday use with reduced fan speed, but when the heat is on and the fan turned up the audible rattle is enough to make anyone find the receipt and make a trip to return it. As for delivering the "Ultimate Cooling Performance", I found that the V1 is really good but to tag it as ultimate might be a pretty good stretch.


Product availability is one of Thermaltake's strong suits. In the U.S. just about every computer shop I have entered carries their brands, and even Radio Shack is now carrying Thermaltake parts now. A quick scan on Pricegrabber shows the V1 being offered for a little over $60 USD after shipping. This is a full $10 USD more than the MaxOrb which offers nearly the exact same performance, so if Thermaltake is in your future this fortune teller says go for the MaxOrb and have enough left over to get a new tube of Arctic Silver.
