Thermaltake NiC C5

18 July 2014
  • Summary: Thermaltakes NiC C5 is an interesting choice; its affordable price and exceptional cooling makes it an attractive option. This is especially true because of its non-intrusive design, which translates into perfect memory clearance on even Intel's LGA2011 socket. The fact that it's easy to install is also a huge boon. Thermaltake's NiC C5 is a cooler you can easily install into a case without removing the motherboard, which is obviously also dependent on the case itself.
  • Pros: Affordable price, Exceptional cooling performance, Perfect memory clearance, Easy to install, Good build quality, Well-packaged
  • Cons: Loud at full speed, Fans lack PWM, Blocks first motherboard expansion slot, Color theme not for everyone

  • Excerpt: Reminiscing of fond memories from CES, more specifically in the Thermaltake suite, I definitely remember seeing this cooler sitting on top of a baby grand piano. At that time there were just the coolers sitting there, nothing mounted to the motherboard that you could really check out the features that were being discussed; you really had to imagine it in your mind.

Thermaltake NiC C5

29 April 2013
  • Summary: Mit dem NiC C5 liefert Thermaltake einen recht schmalen Tower-Cooler ab, der vor allem puncto Verarbeitungsqualität und Leistung zu glänzen weiß. Aber auch das sichere Montagesystem und der üppige Lieferumfang sprechen für den neuen Prozessorkühler. Kurz gesagt: Overclocker und Enthusiasten können bedenkenlos zum C5 greifen. Lediglich der happige Verkaufspreis trübt den positiven Gesamteindruck etwas. Christoph meint: Leistungsfähiger High-End Kühler!
  • Pros: saubere Verarbeitung, sehr gute Leistung, Lüfter bei niedriger und mittlerer Geschwindigkeit leise, passt auf alle gängigen Sockeltypen drauf, Lieferumfang, Design
  • Cons: derzeit noch recht teuer, Lüfter bei max. Geschwindigkeit hörbar, Gewicht
