The Thermaltake V14 Pro

Users will need to pay close attention to which way they mount the V14 Pro since the front and back look identical. You will want your fan blowing to either the back or top of your case to maximize air flow. Here we see the cooler and how large it is.

A look at the side and we see that four heat pipes are running up one side and two on the other leading to the fins.

I have yet to see a CPU cooler with heatpipes as long as I found on the V14 Pro.

The fan is held in place with a bracket that is attached to the base of the cooler. At first I was worried there may be a vibration issue, but the bracket proved to be strong enough to hold the fan firmly in place, even when running at full speed.

The surface of the cooler is smooth to the touch, but some fine machine marks are visibly present.

Looking down on the fan we see that the blades are very aggressive and should pull a fair amount of air through the cooler. The fan is also fitted with a blue LED system that will light up not only the fan and cooler, but most of your case as well.
