Thermaltake V14 Pro CPU Cooler

 

Introduction

 

At Computex Thermaltake displayed several new CPU coolers that would be making their way to retail shelves before we start hanging our holiday lights and catch the cheer. Most of the media attention focused on the new Xpressar phase change cooler (which we will be looking at in the coming weeks). Little attention was paid to the products that were fine tuned since their first showing at CeBIT in March. The Thermaltake V14 Pro was one of those products.

 

The V14 Pro is a redesign of the Thermaltake V1 we reviewed back in December 2007. At the time the V1 proved to dominate the retail coolers from both AMD and Intel and even outperformed the Thermaltake MAX by a small margin in load testing. Since then, Heatpipe Direct Touch (HDT) coolers have emerged as the next great cooling technology and Thermaltake needed to increase performance to stay competitive in the highly contested CPU cooler market.

 

The Thermaltake V14 Pro was born out of this need and on paper looks to be a contender for dominance in CPU cooler performance. With a massive 140mm fan that is capable of running up to 1600 RPMs, six heatpipes, up from the four used on the V1 and standing an impressive 161mm tall, Thermaltake may just have a contender for the crown of best CPU cooler tested here at TweakTown.

 

Let's take a closer look at the new V14 Pro to see how it compares to our previously tested CPU coolers.
