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.

The Thermaltake V14 Pro was able to take the fight to the HDT coolers, but fell a bit short against the mighty MaxOrb EX. The 140mm is able to push more air at fewer revolutions per minute so that should make the fan quieter. Let's have a look and see if that is the case.

Picking up where we left off above, the V14 Pro has a rheostat that allows the user to adjust the fan speed. Per our test procedure, we run with the fan at full speed. As you can see the cooler was very loud at full speed running at 12 volts, but the noise wasn't really from the fan. A couple of the fins were chattering together and it made a heck of a racket.

 

With the fan speed set to typical user levels the acoustics went down considerably and the temps only raised a couple of degrees; two and a half under load to be exact.
